The Networked Journalism Project, organised by TNI's Networked Politics, brought together a team of journalists from around the world to report on the World Social Forum.

The Networked Journalism Project, organised by TNI's Networked Politics, brought together a team of journalists from around the world to report on the World Social Forum. Each day the team met to compare notes and parse out the major themes of the this years Forum.

Global Labor Strategies used this opportunity to launch a new video project, capturing the voices from the global labor and other social movements using the simplest and cheapest video tools available, with almost zero editing. These clips are meant to be raw, unpolished and reflect the hubbub of the moment. Each clip is less than five minutes long and posted below and on Youtube. To embed or link to the videos on your organization's website go to GLS's Youtube page: Globallaborblog.
