Transnational Capital vs People's Resistance

A special edition of the 'Latin America in Movement' magazine discusses the international call to action towards building together a global campaign to dismantle corporate power and impose binding obligations on transnational corporations at the global level. Compiled by America Latina en Movimiento.


19th October 2012 - Published by Transnational Institute 

This special edition of ALAI’s “Latin America in Movement” magazine examines in great detail how transnational capital functions: the sectors it operates in, the globalised logic it follows, the structure of its promiscuous relations with public authorities at all levels, the magnitude of its abuses and its social, economic and environmental irresponsibility. In the following pages, the scope of its power and the challenge we, the people, have before us emerge very clearly.

Published for Rio+20 in June 2012.
