Audio reports from the World Social Forum 2011 in Dakar, Senegal produced for broadcast on campus/community radio globally.

In this segment of Dispatches from Dakar we hear from Patrick Bond of the Centre for Civil Society at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa. Bond speaks on the current mobilization in South Africa and globally against the upcoming UN climate summit to take place in Durban, South Africa between November 28th & December 9th. Activists are converging on the UN climate summit after the widely perceived failure of the COP 15 conference in Copenhagen, Denmark‎ to adequately address the roots of global climate crisis. In this interview Bond details the mobilization efforts in South Africa lead-by communities directly impacted by climate change both in Durban and globally.
