Thanks Martina. I will try my best to take part in the chat tomorrow although I might need to leave a bit earlier as I’m travelling in the afternoon/early evening. Regarding the interpreter training, I wonder if we are still in a position to hold the training at the end of August or if we will finally need to go into the first week in September but I suppose we can discuss this tomorrow.
Looking forward to talking to you then.

I confirm that the International Solidarity Committee for the Iraqi Social Forum (ISF) will have the next Skype chat tomorrow, Wednesday 14th of August, at 15:00 GMT (that is 17:00 in Italy, 18:00 in Iraq). Please notice that we go back to usual time, since Ramadan ended.
The text of our last chat can be read here:
Draft agenda for tomorrow:
- updates from the Iraqi committee
- organization of the interpreters training
- facilitation of the Extended ISF
- security and visa for internationals at the ISF
Meanwhile I inform you that we have 27 proposals of Extended activities, and 40 internationals who registered to go to Baghdad! Some are asking for financial support in order to pay for their trip, we need to discuss this tomorrow.
The great news is that Karibu Foundation may be funding the interpreters training, even if a final decision can be taken only on August 22 by their board. We are therefore getting organized to do it for real!
