Example text

Some critics of the movement have already produced its obituary. They point to the failure to rival the spectacle of the Battle of Seattle and, more fundamentally, to the ramifications of the September 11 attacks. The space for protest is understood to have closed down and the movement thrown into an identity crisis (see discussion in Martin 2003; Callinicos 2003a: 16–19). I am not responding in this chapter to such contentious claims, nor to the undoubtedly changing conjuncture for activism. Rather I want to interrogate the more basic proposition that there has ever been such a thing as ‘an anti-globalisation movement’.

Feminists argue that power is pervasive in social life, including in intimate relationships. They have reflected extensively on their marginalisation within radical movements. They also continue to struggle to take on board the differences and inequalities between women (Eschle 2001: chs 3 and 4). The interventions of black and Third World feminists have been particularly key here, exposing and challenging racist hierarchies within feminist organising (Collins 2000; Mohanty 2003). It has thus become a central concern for feminists to pay attention to the structures and relations of power at work within movement organising; to work out who is included and excluded.

G. Smelser 1962). More recently, ‘resource mobilisation’ theorists have interpreted social movements as the rational result of individuals coming together to pursue collective interests. g. McCarthy and Zald 1977). g. Tarrow 1998). ; Smith et al. 1997). Indeed, it is here we find a few analyses of ‘the anti-globalisation movement’ itself (Smith and Johnston 2002). The focus generally remains on organisations oriented towards political institutions, and/or on the material and cultural resources used by such organisations to ‘frame’ their goals and mobilise supporters.
