Abstract

[Anyone who follows the politics of the Movement for Global Justice (MGJ) will be under no illusions as to the difficulty of the task that confronts it in terms of developing a politics that is effective as well as noisy. Within the movement (or, better, movement of movements) there are many different kinds of grouping as well as many different visions of global justice.1 In terms of the kinds of movement, there are obviously huge numbers of political parties. There are Marxist parties, green parties and more reformist or social democratic parties engaged with the process as well. There are activist groupings and networks such as People’s Global Action, Ya Basta! and the Wombles. There are NGOs such as Greenpeace and Oxfam. There are religious groupings. There are single issue activist groupings such as those campaigning for the abolition of debt or the installation of clean water supplies. There are representatives from governments and trade unions. There are all manner of hybrid or ‘in-between’ groups such as ATTAC, which is itself an umbrella for a variety of radicalisms and activisms.]
