Synopsis

"The Movement of Movements" charts the strategic thinking behind the mosaic of movements currently challenging neoliberal globalization. In this collection leading theorists and activists - the Zapatistas' Subcomandante Marcos, Chittraroopa Palit from the Indian Narmada Valley dam protests, Soweto anti-privatization campaigner Trevor Ngwane, Brazilian Sem Terra Leader Joao Pedro Stedile and many more - discuss their personal formation as radicals, the history of their movements, their analyses of globalization and the nuts and bolts of mobilizing against a US-dominated world system. The book explains how the global South, and the experience of indigenous peoples have provided such a dynamic and practical inspiration for this worldwide wave of resistance, the contributors describe the roles anarchism and direct democracy have played, as well as the effects of and responses to the economic downturn, September 11 and Washington's "War on Terror". The contributors also debate the contributions and limitations of the World Social Forum at Porto Alegre as a co-ordinating focus.
