Quick Reference

Network for anti‐globalization protest, describing itself as ‘a plural, diversified, non‐confessional, non‐governmental and non‐party context that, in a decentralized fashion, interrelates organizations and movements engaged in concrete action at levels from the local to the international to build another world’. Ambiguity about its role and purpose have led to criticism that it has been captured by non‐governmental organizations, and lacks any coherent ideology or programme.
