    12 Over a little more than a year Mayfirst/ People Link has repeatedly been asked to provide support for audio and video streaming from a variety of social movement events such as the World (and US) Social Forum(s) and the Cochabamba Climate Conference. We have had people on the ground to stream or support streaming all over the world, from Bolivia to Senegal, Palestine to Mexico, we have provided some form of streaming services and through it have learned a lot about what works, what doesn't and how to plan for streaming from just about anywhere; and all using Free and Open Source Software.
     12Over little more than a year ago, May First/People Link has answered multiple calls to provide support for audio and video streaming for social movement events such as the World and US Social Forums and the Cochabamba Climate Conference. We show up, fully-prepared or just-in-time, to stream or support streaming in vastly different circumstances all over the world. From Bolivia to Senegal, Palestine to Mexico, we have provided some form of virtual interactivity through broadcasting. No two situations have ever been the same and we have learned a lot about what works and what doesn't; and all using Free and Open Source Software.
