'People's Forum on BRICS' underlines importance of people's movements
A panel discussion organised on 5 October in the city under the banner of People's Forum on BRICS underlined the importance of people's movements from across the BRICS countries coming together not only to challenge neo-liberal projects of BRICS but also to collectively articulate an alternate vision for the grouping.
The panel is part of a series of events in Delhi and Goa in the run-up to a larger people's assembly in Porvorim, Goa from 13-14 October, just before the official BRICS heads of state summit from 15-16 October.

The 2 day gathering at the Xavier Centre of Historical Research will see the participation of alliances such as the National Alliance of Peoples Movements (NAPM), National Fishworkers Forum (NFF), trade unions such as All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC-Goa), Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU-Goa), New Trade Union Initiative (NTUI) and networks such as the Goa based Women's collective Bailancho Saad.

88 organisations from across India and outside have endorsed the call for the Peoples Forum in Goa and more than 500 people are expected to attend various seminars and cultural events next week.

Panelists expressed concern over the resource exploitative, carbon intensive development trajectories of the BRICS countries, which have replicated imperialist tendencies in their neighborhoods and deepened the structural inequalities in their societies.
