For what? The Campaign will promote from the space of the WSF in Salvador de Bahía (March 13-17, 2018), the articulation between the mobilizations of resistance struggles at the global level, towards the construction of the 8th WSF of the Migrations to be developed in Mexico (November 2018).


   Complement the Mexican national dynamics towards the 8th WSF of the Migrations, through the elaboration of a cartography of organizations, activists and defenders of Human Rights of the international migrant community.

   To develop the experience of intercommunication at a distance among participants, summoning the diaspora of the WSFM to reinforce its global character, having as its guiding principle migrations and their active resistance struggles, understanding their impact and reach with other social resistances.

   Promote the 8th WSFM 2018 Mexico as a meeting place for unity in the diversity of recognition among people, collectives and movements to make visible, strengthen and articulate different groups and anti-systemic struggles linked to their being and feeling of migration.


During and after the WSF of Salvador de Bahía, international events will be organized, inviting openly resistance movements to build the 8th WSF of Migrations in Mexico. These events will be included in the Migrations WSF calendar and may be local, regional, national and international actions, with the active participation of the migrant and pro-migrant community of the different nations of origin, transit, destination and return.



   In progress

The National Facilitator Committee meets regularly in open meetings and is scheduled every second Friday of the month to coordinate work towards the construction of the 8th Migration WSF in November 2018, making participation more and more widespread and inviting both migrants as to pro-migrant organizations and people around the world.

A participatory process is currently open through popular consultation, for the construction of the central motto of the 8th WSFW 2018 Mexico, among the people who have participated in the National Facilitation Committee and making a wide diffusion among people, organizations and networks of different parts of the world. This, with the firm purpose of building the consensus of this initial thematic universe, in terms of a vision and a common practice in the mediate future, before the systemic offensive unleashed against human mobility.

At the same time, a national and international cartography is being prepared, for which, in parallel, this initiative proposes a detailed elaboration of resistance assemblies, active movements, activists and human rights defenders with the participation of organizations and active movements of all the world, assistants to the WSF in Salvador, with the aim of initiating the processes of linking the greatest number of these resistance struggles to converge in the 8th WSF of the Migrations.

On the way to the 8th WSF of the Migrations, there are mechanisms and communication systems of the national facilitating group in Mexico, which communicates permanently via whatsapp, as well as by other electronic means and social networks, including the electronic page fsmm2018.org that has permanent and personalized chat rooms.

   Start of March

In March, the national facilitation committee in Mexico, through an open and broad call, will begin the scheduling of regional or thematic activities towards the 8th WSFW. The activities are self-managed and will be open to the participation of people of different nationalities and organizations and networks of Mexico and other parts of the world.

   Second half of 2018

It is planned to call regional and / or thematic mobilizations at the national and international level to promote the active participation of the migrant community as speakers of the global problem.

In at least some of them will be of a "pre-forum" type, with a diverse face-to-face program and attendance, the national committee will plan the particular logistical effort to allow international organizations to organize activities of various types with connectivity and interpretation support and schedules to allow exchanges with Mexican organizations and promotion of themes and initiatives promoted from other continents.

This will be a logistical and political preparation of the inclusion of remote participants in the Migration WSF.

It is expected that this will stimulate the global scheduling of decentralized active participations after the WSF of Bahia and towards the 8th WSF of the Migrations.


   During the 8th WSFW

With the learning of stages 1 and 2, the national committee intends to prepare a particularly connected and inclusive FSMM2018 for remote participants, collecting in a "fsmm2018 future calendar" an image of ongoing initiatives among participants fsmm, updated on the website during a period of time
