The Better World Forum 2012 opened its virtual doors this past Saturday,  April 21st with a lineup of global social entrepreneurs with solutions for  many of the problems currently facing the 100%.

to the reality of another world beginning. Ordinary people and citizens of all nations must educate and agitate in defense of human rights in their  universal relevance and specific applications. Indeed, Occupy Human Rights. We are the 100% ."
