The WFAL opens  on April at the WSF some discussions and perspectives on commons work to a large number of participants. It has presented two workshops about land and natural resources grabbing and has participated also at the "Global convergence of land and water struggles". The WFAL has been presented as a possible way to obtain a secure access to land and natural ressources for the hundreds of millions of family farmers, fishermen and forest farmers, today victims of dramatic eviction processes.
