A Summer Workshop on Globalization
ACA Liberation Through Education is now offering an educational curriculum working on understanding the basics and complexities of globalization and the alternatives to a global capitalist economy. The eight lesson curriculum covers the history and workings of financial institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, World Trade Organization, Free Trade Policies. Their effects on the working poor and indigenous peoples of the world and resistance and alternatives to the global capitalist economy. Many exercises are based on the book, 'Rethinking Globalization', put out by Rethinking Our Schools; a local group of public school teachers dedicated to an alternative vision of public education.
The workshops will take place once a week, every Tuesday 5-7 pm at the old school building behind St. Francis Church, 330 12th and Pine (2 blocks north of Stark St.) Look for signs directing you to the room the in which the class will take place.
