Moving Mountains: Communities Confront Mining and Globalization

"Moving Mountains is about campaigns challenging the power, priorities, and practices of global mining corporations. Transnational mining companies are key agents of corporate globalization, which are often larger than national economies, and dominate governments and local peoples, creating fiefdoms dedicated to the single purpose of extracting resources. Contributors from a wide range of backgrounds discuss experiences, strategies, and key issues in the globalization debate, through various accounts from Canada, Australia, Bougainville, the US, and the Philippines.
