Have you checked the conference out? Or does this just represent a knee-jerk reaction against it?

"The World Social Forum is an open meeting place where social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations opposed to neo-liberalism and a world dominated by capital or by any form of imperialism come together to pursue their thinking, to debate ideas democratically, for formulate proposals, share their experiences freely and network for effective action. Since the first world encounter in 2001, it has taken the form of a permanent world process seeking and building alternatives to neo-liberal policies. This definition is in its Charter of Principles, the WSF's guiding document."

There is more than a knee to jerk at these neo-Stalinists.

Continuing world process?
That must be the new name for the 'inevitability of history',or even the 'dialectic'.
Talking of reaction,isn't talking of reaction the mark of a communist?
