Organize!: Building from the Local for Global Justice in the Globe & Mail

Globe & Mail

What with greedy corporations, cash-strapped social services and callous governments, it’s not a bad idea for people to learn how better to organize themselves and their neighbours to protect their communities. The editors have drawn on a wide range of activists, academics, lawyers, artists and researchers to present a compelling mix of actions – community-based labour-organizing strategies for immigrant workers, mobilizing psychiatric survivors, support for indigenous people – to bring about change in a time of unprecedented economic, social and ecological crises. The essays in this work examine the tensions, problems, limits and gains in a range of organizing practices, and place the processes in historical perspective.
