Defeating the Free Market

Published: April 29, 2011, Author: JayTaber

As the energy and mineral extraction industries move into the final phase of wasting creation, indigenous governance remains an obstacle to unimpeded greed. Guarding indigenous governance, then, becomes more than a human rights or environmental concern. In essence, protecting indigenous nations from the relentless onslaught by the Free Market is now a key element in the survival of humankind.

Defeating the Free Market thus becomes an imperative for indigenous networks and their anti-globalization allies.

With the acceleration of Free Market attacks on health and education worldwide, institutional enemies of indigenous governance within the US, EU, and UN — while generating millions of new adversaries — remain formidable foes. How the world indigenous peoples’ movement proceeds against these foes is a matter of grave concern.
