Globalization’s Change of Society

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 7, 2007

On post for Choike, this blogger writes about the conference “Globalization and social exclusion: an alternative proposal for LGBTs” which was sponsored by the South/South Dialogue of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender:

Rosario’s mention of the FTAA process elicited an intervention by Irene León, who expressed the opinion that globalization is not merely an economic problem and that it cannot be disassociated from other social concerns. The establishment of a treaty like the FTAA goes far beyond trade issues, she stated; it would imply new norms governing social life, directly affecting basic aspects such as the production of knowledge.

The Hijacking of Chávez

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 7, 2007

XicanoPwr, of Para Justicia y Libertad, attacks the right’s use of Cesar Chavez in rallying support for oppossing undocumented workers. In this post the author writes:

Today, we are the guardians of his legacy, it is up to us to honor César Chávez to protect and enhance the future of today and tomorrow’s immigrants. Discredit him, it is us who will harm the future of the Latino community and will provide the opportunities for others to keep our people down or gain power at Chávez’s expense. César told Matthiessen that the reactionaries were always better organizers. “The right has a lot of discipline that the left lacks. The left always dilutes itself. Instead of merging to go after the common enemy, the left splinters, and the splinters go after one another. Meanwhile, the right keeps after its objective, pounding away, pounding away.” It is true today as it was true back then.
