Most important progressive event in history? Please, get a grip!

Now this is really PRETENTIOUS. The organizers of the Barcelona 2004 Forum claim that it will be the most important progressive event in history. Such VANITY! They never heard of the World Social Forum? Their press release makes not the slightest nod of acknowledgement to the annual WSF, which started in Porto Alegre in 2000 and took place in Mumbai this year. I don't know how progressive can the Barcelona Forum be, with speakers as mainstream as Bill Clinton (you know, Hillary's husband) and Mikhail Gorbachev, concerts by artists like Phil Collins (talk about VH-1 lite!) and corporate sponsors like Endesa, Toyota and Coca Cola.
