On the occasion of the next World Social Forum (WSF) in Belém do Pará (north of Brazil) from 27 January and 1 February 2009, the Amazon Region of the Society is planning to hold a pre-forum in Belém do Pará. Between 24 and 27 January, Jesuits and their collaborators as well as other religious orders or groups interested in the topic are invited to talk about Religious Faiths and the Struggle for Life, specifically in the Amazon region. This meeting, entitled “Fe’namazônia”, is supported by the Social Sector of the Jesuit Conference (CPAL) and the Social Justice Secretariat in Rome.
