What can those individuals, groups and organisations on the ‘the left’ or the ‘progressive’ side of politics do to bring an end to global corporate rule?

Faced with a highly organised, well-funded and strategically savvy band of ultra conservatives – those who have planned the corporate takeover of the globe - how do we set about creating a unified movement capable of bringing about fundamental and lasting change?  

We need a movement that challenges corporate power, and speaks more broadly and effectively to the disenfranchised about the possibility of a more peaceful, sustainable and equitable future? Given the rise of ultra-conservatism, the consolidated power of multinational corporations, and the threat to our very existence, the challenges we face have never been greater.
