fair trade and decent livelihoods
respect for life, health and environmental sustainability
true democracy – not 'corporatocracy'
freedom, security and equal opportunity for all
zero tolerance for terror of all kinds – state terror and domestic tyranny included

17-11-2003 22:52The little old lady named Lindis Percy
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
Has a pretty little flower bed of white gardenias

The Negri/Calliniocs debate was billed as exactly that however, a battle between two movement stars perhaps broadly representing the two major ideological tendencies within the anti-capitalist movement currently in contestation. The title of the debate was “Multitude or Working Class”.

But the movements are advancing, painfully, but surely, burying their comrades, tending their wounded, nurturing their survivors and increasing their solidarity. Ultimately, with organization, consciousness and audicity we will win, not only because the cause of liberty and equality is just, but because we dare to struggle.
