GLOBALIZE LIBERATION GIVES VOICE
& A HOW-TO GUIDE TO THE "NEW RADICALISM"
"New radicalism" is a term used to describe the diverse movement of
movements that is challenging empire, corporate capitalism and Bush
worldwide, inspiring millions to flood the streets in resistance and to
take action in their own communities. The new radicalism is new both in
how popular and widespread it has become, and in its original methods of
organizing for change.

Globalize Liberation weaves together the experiences and insights of
community organizers, direct-action movements, and global justice
struggles from North America, Europe, and Latin America. It offers clear
analysis of our root problems, new strategies and tools for radical
change, and examples of effective organizing campaigns and popular
rebellions‹from the popular rebellion in Argentina to the agricultural
fields of Florida, and from the anti-prison organizing in California's
Central Valley to the radical popular movement in Italy. Visually rich,
with over one hundred and eighty powerful photos and illustrations,
Globalize Liberation uses an innovative travel-guide style tab 
navigation
and cutting-edge design.

This event kicks off a three month North American Roadshow of popular
education theater, strategy and creative action workshops and book 
events
with contributing authors across the continent.  The Roadshow will help
mobilize around the Republican National Convention, the Day After the
Election Day Actions and the Close the School of the Americas actions on
November 10-21.
