Counteracting Violence

Published: May 4, 2011, Author: JayTaber

It might work to the benefit of tribes as well as tribal activists and their allies to discuss means of counteracting free market violence. Analysis of such things as communications in conflict, research as organizing tool, networks and netwar would be not only useful in guarding indigenous governance, but help to clarify the experience and direction of the anti-globalization movement already in life and death struggle within indigenous territories and international institutions worldwide.

Whether participants view it necessary to transform, defeat, or circumscribe the free market system, they can jointly focus on ending the violence against indigenous peoples and Mother Earth. Discussing the tools and skills required in this task, and how to make them accessible, might draw an interesting mix of activists and scholars.
