“Guadalajara Declaration on the future of the city”. A Proposal
The World Parliamentary Forum has taken place regularly from the first time in Porto Alegre, in 2001, in the context of the World Social Forum (WSF). Thousands of delegates from many countries gathered for the Word Parliamentary Forum to affirm that there are alternatives to the neoliberal order, personified by the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland). The parliamentarians affirm the primacy of its collaboration with the social and democratic movements and their struggles and stated a new resolution in the framework of the 2007 WSF in Nairobi.
These are the some points covered by the resolution: economic partnership EU-ACP agreements proposed by the European Union, as unacceptable; debt cancellation; the primacy of a Human Rights perspective over an economic one in the area of migrations; the rejection of wars; access to water to be officially declared as a fundamental human right; a new global contract, political, social, cultural, environmental, and ethical, to be established, as well as a global human-development watch; and participatory democracy and social inclusion. Finally, the resolution calls for the strengthening of their network of committed parliamentarians.
