People's Movement against Global Capitalism

In the post-cold war world, issues of equality and social justice still remain vital concerns. As the increasing gap between rich and poor countries, and the growing desperation of the poor and the unemployed reveal, market economy is not an all-encompassing panacea and it thus becomes necessary to find an alternative. It is here that civil society and the local community must have the space to act and where necessary even solicit the state's intervention - a moving idea behind those protest movements seen earlier this year. The challenge of the new century is to bring these ideas together in a new consistent design, towards a "mobilisation against globalisation" through which a more humane and equitable economic and social order will possibly take shape.
