You can't unfortunately get access to either one in web content template because they are rendered in the service backend. You need to find another approach to what you are trying to accomplish.

You have access to an xml representation of the request. This xml document is available in the template as xmlRequest. It is documented on the wiki.

Note however that webcontent is usually cached and you'd have to disable caching in order to make use of this

Ok i understand.

An another way is may be to use friendly URL like below:

#foreach ($userOrganization in $userOrganizations)
#if (!$userOrganization.isRoot() && $userOrganization.getParentOrganization().getGroupId() == 10698)
## debug $request.theme-display
## debug $getterUtil.getBoolean("false")
#set ($organizationFriendlyPath = $userOrganization.getGroup().getPathFriendlyURL($getterUtil.getBoolean("false"), $request.theme-display))
## debug $organizationFriendlyPath
#set ($organizationFriendlyURL = $userOrganization.getGroup().getFriendlyURL())
## debug $organizationFriendlyURL
#set ($OrganizationLink = "$organizationFriendlyPath$organizationFriendlyURL")
$OrganizationLink

<li><a href="${OrganizationLink}">$userOrganization.Name</a></li>

#end

Unfortunately, this statement don't execute correctly :
#set ($organizationFriendlyPath = $userOrganization.getGroup().getPathFriendlyURL($getterUtil.getBoolean("false"), $request.theme-display))

$request.theme-display seem not to be the right Type even I supposed it is RequestVars.getThemeDisplay, but may be it is not !?

Thanks Jelmer, I need HttpServletRequest or PortletRequest to use one of them in $Request in the statement below:
#set ($myPlaceURL = $portletFactoryUtil.create($Request, "49", $userOrganization.getGroup().getDefaultPublicPlid(), "ACTION_PHASE"))

The goal is just to list some organization from a velocity script web content template with a link to each organization.

I already have everything (user, organization, group), i just need this parameter to finish the job. If i can't have it I have to find an another way to achieve this like may the second example i posted.

Thanks for your recommandation ...

You can't create links like that from a cms template because that would require access to the real request

You should pobably use javascript as i describe in this post
