Project South is a broad-based, community-driven membership organization that develops popular political and economic education and action research for organizing and liberation. They develop indigenous popular educatiors and movement leaders from grassroots and scholar-activist backgrounds, bringing them together on the basis of equality to engage in building a bottom-up movement for social and economic justice. This toolkit is about resistance. It is a gathering of resources, experiences, ideas, lessons learned and visions for building a movement to stop corporate globalization. Inside is a workshop, popular education tools, contact lists and other resources to help readers and workshop leaders develop a strategy to resit corporate globalization in one's own community. Like all Project South manuals, this toolkit begins with a glossary of terms frequently used in the realm of corporate globalization and in the toolkit itself. The beginning also includes some essays which provide background on Chiapas and the Zapatistas. There is a brief section supplying historical facts, followed by the workshop itself, and, finally, some additional resources. This is an introductory workshop so may be geared towards any sort of organization or group that wishes to increase bottom-up movements and activism against corporate dominance. There need not be an understanding of globalization or the Zapatista movement prior to workshop facilitation. It is recommended that the workshop include no more than 25 participants. The exercises in the workshop can also be used separately as part of a media campaign, guerrilla theater, or to bring interactive qualities to a speech, lecture, or panel discussion.
