    Possibilities for taking part in the Extended Iraqi Social Forum:
    A) Organize a solidarity activity in your city to spread awareness on the
    Iraqi situation and the ISF. You can do this before, during or after the
    forum. We strongly advise you to take pictures or videos of the event and
    send them to the Extended Iraqi Social Forum. These will be published on
    the Facebook of the Iraqi Social Forum as an expression of solidarity
    between your group and Iraqi civil society. If you plan to organize a
    solidarity activity, please fill in the form below. Alternatively, you can
    send pictures and videos of a solidarity activity to isf.smtools@...
    B) Have an exchange with Iraqi civil society through via video-conference
    between your group and a group at the ISF. This activity will take place on
    Saturday October 3 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Baghdad time (GMT+3). A room at
    the ISF will be equipped with internet connection and webcam allowing a
    video-exchange between a group of civil society activists at the ISF in
    Baghdad and your group, wherever you are, via Google Hangout (via audio and
    text-chat). The extension team will add you to the Google Hangout group via
    the email registered in the participation form. Find us via
    isf.smtools@.... The ISF 2015 Extension Team will contact you to
    confirm your participation.
    C) Watch the livestream of activities held in Baghdad within the ISF. Some
    activities during the forum (1-3 October 2015) will be visible by internet
    streaming, if the quality of connection allows it. You could watch these
    activities with your friends, project them in a public space. Please
    consider that connection in Baghdad is precarious and most likely there
    will be occasional interruptions of the streaming even when we make it
    work. A list of livestreamed activities will be published here, including
    the livestream link.
