-  hace falta una press release sexy, como decia Paco ahier, para mainstream media

-  Monica wrote to all the registered orgs (http://www.fsm2009amazonia.org.br/news/soon-the-final-list-of-activities-with-date-place-and-time-in-the-wsf-2009) of them, tomorrow I'll write back to ask again

- Some topics for research to produce media contente: native peoples gathering / countries participating / peoples strugles / "beautiful and bold" people atending ("celebrities") / Solidarity with Palestine / alternatives to economic crisis / alternatives to the ecologic crisis

- It's iportant to have info about the issues listed above listed

-  many events of Belem Expanded concentrate on that, by the way, and connect to Economia Solidaria

- marica di pierri: can write tomorrow to caoi, Onic y other organization. they already send to me a first programm with the main activities concerning indigenous people

- it's important showing there are alternatives coming from the social movements/networks of the global justice movemnts/WSF, it seemed useful to get togther a bunsch of writers who would specicifically conenctrate on collecting and syatematising all the work on alternatives and presenting them in ammedia freindly fashipn to sympathetic media

- I think it would be good to mention the international calendar for this year where the "movements" will be present and are already preparing activities, connected to the issues that will be addressed in Belem: Davos (same time) and the financial crisis; the G8 and the global governance crisis; the COP09 (Copenaghen Climate Change Summit in december).  Any other?

- confirmed: Rome (Monica), Mexico (Salvador Aguillar)
