Text to be sent to the OC and to be published, explaining why Babels declines to organize interpretation at the WSF 2015

On January 8, 2015, the Organizing Committee of the WSF 2015 contacted Babels ( requesting the help of our network in supplying interpretation logistics for the World Social Forum in Tunis, (24-28 march 2015).

After debating the issue with its members, Babels regrets having to to inform the Organizing Committee of the WSF that we collectively decline to organise interpretation for the WSF 2015.

The majority of our responding members have expressed the opinion that it would not be realistic for Babels to engage in the present project. This position is based on a number of reasons, among them:

This year we will be happy to support the organizational process of the WSF 2015 in Tunisia through other means. And of course, we remain committed to our mission, which is to strengthen language diversity in the processes and events of the social movements, including future instances of the World Social Forum.
