For me, one of the real achievements of this WSF has been thewonderful turnout of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex(LGBTI) activists here (particularly from Africa).

Tribal revival

Guess which country the Radio New Internationalist team is talking about today? Its indigenous people - still struggling for rights to their land and resources - often live in shanty communities overrepresented by the unemployed, drug addicted, and alcoholic. Fringe-dwellers, they die much earlier than non-indigenous people, and suffer a range of chronic health problems.
