Not for Sale / No se Vende
Global trade agreements expand what corporations can own and control —from things like machines to knowledge and even living creatures. What does this mean for the environment, our food supply, and human rights?
In this new documentary, farmers, indigenous people, and anti-globalization activists advocate for a world where life is not a commodity but something to be treasured and protected.

Another World is Possible  24 minutes
What if 51,000 people from 131 countries put their heads together to discuss what is wrong with the world and how to work together to change it? In late January, 2002, public officials, non-governmental organizations, indigenous people, and 11,000 young people, including several from Seattle, gathered in Porto Alegre, Brazil for the World Social Forum. Called in response to the elite gathering of the World Economic Forum, this week of workshops, panel discussions and high spirited demonstrations was an inspiration for those attending.
This international event, covered extensively in other parts of the world, was virtually ignored by the U.S. press. Another World is Possible presents a sampling of the issues discussed and the impressions of Young and Dworkin of this enormous and creative gathering.
