   schema:description "Extrait de la couverture : In "There is an Alternative", a distinguished group of authors explode the myth that there is no alternative to corporate-sponsoreed globalization. Instead of the ongoing violence, economic insecurity and environmental destruction that caracterize the new millenium, and our frequent sense of hopelessness that there is no other path, they provide living proof that thousands of alternatives already exist. The authors - theoreticians and activists - come from feminist, environmental, anti-imperialist, and anti-racist struggles across a wide swathe of different countries and continents. They put forward and describe both visions and already existing community initiatives that defy the tenets of corporate globalization and demonstrate that we can challenge and move beyond the systems of domination that now pose such a threat to our existence. Their book is divided into three parts : - The theory of subsistence -Globalization as colonisation -Concrete cases of resistance in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, Australia, and the Pacific. What unites these diverse and paradigm-shattering stories and essays is the fact that they are all inspired by the groundbreaking work done by Maria Mies and her colleagues that has culminated in the elaboration of what is now called the subsistence perspective. This emerges not as a monolithic or universal solution to the problems posed by corporate globalization, but rather as a fertile matrix for creative thinking and action to reclaim our labour, our communities, our environment, ou bodies, and our lives. Anyone who refuses to believe that the globalization of domination is our inevitable destiny cannot help but find in this book a solid basis for formulating ideas and implementing strategies for the creation of a future in the image and interests of all the world's peoples." ;
