When tens of thousands of demonstrators shut down the WTO meetings in Seattle, it heralded not only an awareness of the new global capitalist order, but the start of a movement to effectively challenge it. Some of today's leading scholars and activists present not only an in-depth and accessible analysis of the new economic world we are forced to inhabit, but how we can, and are, fighting back in a myriad of ways.
This double CD ranges over the changing politics of globalization, neoliberalism and world trade, colonialism and debt, militarism and policing, native and indigenous rights and struggles, frankenfood and genetic engineering, capitalism and the fairy-tale economic boom - and the leading alternatives to, and struggles against, a system which puts profits over people, unregulated growth over sustainability, and money over morals.
Join Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Ward Churchill, Alexander Cockburn, Vandana Shiva, Christian Parenti, Robin Hahnel, Michael Albert, Craig O'Hara, Normon Solomon, Chris Crass, and members of the Biotic Baking Brigade and the Acme Collective of the Black Bloc as they break down, and take apart, the new world order.
