the IRAK SOCIAL FORUM opening ceremony will take place today, 26th of September, from Baghdad University Campus, at 12:00 Baghdad Time GMT/UTC +3h . A live stream of the whole day will be available online (at www.iraqsf.org).
If internet connection at the campus is good enough, we will have two streaming channels, one in English and one in Arabic, otherwise you will only hear the audio on the stage (mainly Arabic, with speeches of internationals in English).
