Launched in France in 1998, Attac is an international activist movement "for democratic control of financial markets and their institutions." Their global-thinking, local-acting approach to mobilization extends to this hardcover booklet of songs and texts from around the world. Globalization is illustrated in its best possible light through Asian Dub Foundation‘s "Police on My Back," followed by Bosnian director Emir Kusturica‘s cover of The Clash‘s "Lost in the Supermarket," Femi Kuti‘s "I Wanna Be Free," Grandaddy‘s "Wives of Farmers" and on to Moby (ever the activist) with "Afterlife." Required readings include essays from culture-jammer Naomi Klein, linguist Noam Chomsky, Arundhati Roy and more.
