CUPW to Take Part in Scary-Sounding "World Social Forum"

Reps from Canada's Zion-loathing postal union will be jetting off to Tunis--an in Tunisia--come March. They will take part in something I've never heard of before that sounds somewhat threatening, in a "Workers of the world, unite" kind of way:
The World Social Forum is a vital space for social movements which struggle to preserve people’s dignity, so that they remain masters of their own destiny, able to fight for and acquire new economic, social, cultural and environmental rights, and able to construct alternatives to the neoliberal world order.
I can think of several alternatives to "the neoliberal world order"--none of them good ones.
