The Emerging World: Alternatives that can change everything, by Attac

Les Liens qui libèrent, August 23, 2017
Dn behind the instability and chaos of an increasingly unpredictable world, new social practices, new ideas and concepts are emerging. On every continent, activist groups, village communities and indigenous peoples are resisting oppression and exploitation. In these mobilizations, they are defending what, in their histories and traditions, are the points of support for their struggles and they are imagining alternatives that would make the world more just. The indigenous peoples of the Andes are defending both the rights of nature, of "Mother Earth", and a different relationship between humans than those imposed by the colonial system. The commons of the European Middle Ages and their equivalents on other continents are today experiencing a revival, driven by digital technology and the management of natural assets. In Asia, activists have defended "deglobalisation" as an alternative to neo-liberal globalisation.
Approaches such as eco-feminism or degrowth are emerging in different regions of the world. All these experiences are socially and geographically located, but their scope can become universal: this is what the authors present in this book.
Attac is an association that fights so that citizens can, through democratic action, reappropriate together the future of our world, today subject to the law of speculation and financial markets. Present in about fifty countries, it is active in the anti-globalization movement and social forums.
