Summary

The World Trade Organization, World Bank and International Monetary Fund are powerful institutions that threaten diversity, labor rights, the environment and democracy itself in their push for increased globalization. They make rules that affect us all, but don't allow much input from ordinary citizens; time and time again they have proven instead to serve the interests of government elites and transnational corporations.

Learn from some of the WTO opposition movement's best and brightest activists, educators and organizers:

  • Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce, artfully weaves together the street protests and policy debates in his memoir-commentary on Seattle
  • Susan George of the Transnational Institute shows why, although Seattle was a defining moment, it must be built on immediately--neoliberals who want increased global trade will lose no time in regrouping
  • Betita Martinez explores how to organize people of all cultures to protest unrepresentative globalization internationally
  • The Environmental Research Foundation focuses on how trade policies have affected the world's environment and our health
  • Walden Bello takes on the fundamentally undemocratic process of the WTO
  • William Greider, writer for Rolling Stone, shows us how to take an offensive stance in battling the WTO.
  • This book demonstrates why the WTO, World Bank and IMF must be stopped. With its rich information about how to become part of the opposition movement, Globalize This! also shows us how to stop them.
