  Programmes of the Belgian alternative globalization movement: a Gramscian perspective
To conclude as far as the composition of the movement is concerned, we might remark that the activists in the alternative globalisation movement are mostly young, but certainly not all of them (which is an important difference with the movement of the sixties and seventies, some of whose ‘veterans’ now are active again).
The sympathisers of the movement seem primarily to have voted for the greens (who have suffered a terrible defeat in the 2003 elections) and especially for the social democrats which they consider as ‘the lesser evils’.
Movements that are ‘revolutionary’ in the sense that they aim for major structural changes in society of course need a large social base, but this social base is also partly the result of its own discursive construction.

 Anti-Globalization Movement
Globalization is essentially an economic process that begins in America and eventually involves its tri-lateral partners in Europe and Japan.
All of the movements have in their front lines the youth of various societies, who are tired of watching TV and their future being sold to transnational corporations.
The movement has its sights set on several goals over the next couple of years, and every effort should be made to track developments and support, which in any case will have to be done outside the world of the global corporate media.

 Shape shifting: Civil Society, Complexity and Social Movements
The discourse of global civil society expresses an evolving and radically democratic praxis that is rooted in the struggles of communities, movements and groups worldwide, the essence of which is often exhibited during conflictual collective action by the AGM.
In this discourse global civil society is presented as the domain where globalising forces are recognised, interrogated and contested, thereby acting as a bulwark against the excesses of globalization and as a model for alternative forms of solidarity and internationalism.
Global civil society and in particular the AGM has proliferated by using inclusive methods of organising, pluralistic patterns of intervention and the targeting of organisations, events and situations that have a global impact and as such have resonance for social movements and other sympathetic constituencies globally.

 The Anti-Globalization Movement
The anti-globalization movement is not primarily composed of Luddites who would take away telephone and e-mail, and in fact many of these groups make use of this technology themselves.
Altman, in his book Global Sex, argues that as a direct result of economic development, “hundreds of thousands are forced to turn to sex work.”[26] Altman’s work goes much farther than a simple connection between development, impoverishment, and the need to turn to prostitution in order to live.
Unlike many of the other problems with globalization, labour issues are highly visible, and it apparent from the number of protests and movements which have sprung up around this issue that this issue serves as a focal point for the anti-globalization movement.

 Anti-Globalization Movement - OpenWiki   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Some factions of the movement reject globalization as such, but the overwhelming majority of its participants are aligned with movements of indigenous people, human rights NGO's, anarchism, green movements, and to a minor extent communism.
Some activists in the movement have objected not to capitalism or international markets as such but rather to what they claim is the non-transparent and undemocratic mechanisms; and the negative consequences of unregulated globalization.
There are many different causes championed by movement members, including labor rights, environmentalism, feminism, freedom of migration, preservation of the cultures of indigenous peoples, biodiversity, cultural diversity, food safety, organic farming, opposition to the green revolution and genetic engineering, and ending or reforming capitalism.

 babble: the self-criticism method for the alternative globalisation movement
This is my personal conviction, that most of the time alternative globalisation activists do their projects with the faith that they are doing something important and achieving things, even when that clearly isn't the case.
The movement should start it's gradual journey towards intellectualism and rational approach, in which the goal is to make the most of our resources (which is mostly volunteers and the time they dedicate to the cause).
A large proportion of the participants were not active in the alternative globalization movement, and wouldn't have taken part in such protests.

 AlterNet: The Anti-globalization Movement Changes Its Tune
A movement that crosses all national boundaries, that relies so heavily on electronic communications, that so effectively summons people to come from all over the world to march in the streets of whatever city might be hosting an economic conference was clearly a global one, however vigorously its rhetoric might condemn the evils of globalization.
A movement that aspires to "build a planetary society" is going to have to move beyond the protest stance and become more practical and proactive than it has been so far.
Unless it does, the best we have as alternatives to the present neo-liberal thrust of globalization are protectionism and socialism -- which didn't do a whole lot to solve the problems of previous centuries, and are not likely to prove the salvation of this one.

 Toni Negri, Profile of a Terrorist Ideologue
Negri and Hardt co-authored a book, Empire, published by Oxford University Press, in which they better explain their "alternative globalization movement": Globalization is a new form of Empire, they write, which is good because it replaces the nation-state.
In Italy, Negri is serving a 12-year sentence for having been a leading member of both the Red Brigades and the Autonomist movement in the 1970s.
When he returned to Italy, in October 1997, Negri started work on his book, Empire, and sent a statement from prison announcing that the new "laboratory of subjectivity" is the form of deregulation and liberalization pushed by the Lega Nord in the Veneto region, in a "leftist" variant.

 Black Bloc (or not?) in Genoa : LA IMC   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The mainstream media and many groups in the alternative Globalization movement are either buying the story of the fl block actions moving Genoa to extreme violence (which was completely theresponsibility of the police) or on other hand, defending the fl block against charges of infiltration.
As the recent history of the movement proves, the Black Bloc are not static and can adopt different tactics and seek "cross-fertilization" like they did in Quebec City during the anti-FTAA mobilization.
My opinion is not even an opinion, for it is fully supported by testimonies and video documentation: last Friday six or seven infiltrated carabinieri channeled and directed the (just, albeit blind) anger of hundreds of anarchist kids who should have known better.
