Escape from the Global Fortress: the state of the globalisation debate
Monday 14 October, 6.30pm
Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street
Live video link: Old Theatre, Old Building. Doors to open 30 mins before event, on a first come, first served basis.
Naomi Klein, author of No Logo, will give the audience an overview of the global revolt against corporate power on Monday 14 October at LSE. From the Seattle World Trade Organisation protests in 1999, through the crackdown on dissent post-September 11, she will build a case that globalisation has not been about taking barriers down, but about putting new fences up.
Naomi Klein is an award winning journalist and author of many publications including No Logo: taking aim at the brand bullies. Her articles have appeared in numerous publications and a collection of her work, entitled Fences and Windows: dispatches from the front lines of the globalization debate will be published in October 2002. For the past six years, she has travelled throughout North America, Asia, Latin America and Europe, tracking the rise of anti-corporate activism.
