World Social Forum 2004

A consultation about the right to food campaign took place in Mumbai on 20 January 2004 to coincide with the World Social Forum in the city. The meeting was attended by about 50 activists from all over the country to discuss possible activities during the next few months, in the light of the forthcoming 2004 parliamentary elections. At the meeting, the "Mumbai statement" was drafted on 20 January 2004 which gave shape to the campaign in its early days.
