The recent visit of two AfroColumbians to the Boggs Center started me thinking dialectically about the paradigm shift in the concept and practice of Solidarity made necessary and possible by corporate globalization .
In 1997 these AfroColumbians, advair pill, Cheapest advair price, members of a small farming community in Araba, Colombia, buy cheapest advair, Cheap advair in uk, were among those displaced when a joint paramilitary and U.S.-backed military operation, under the pretext of fighting guerrilla forces, advair for order, Advair cost, took over their resource-rich homeland so that global corporations could produce palm oil for the world market and carry on large scale cattle ranging and logging .
Determined to reclaim their territory, get advair, Find advair online, the farmers created "humanitarian zones" in the neighboring area as enclaves of peaceful civil resistance. These Humanitarian Zones are internationally recognized and protected by the Inter-American Court on Human Rights, buy advair online.

Visiting the Hope District, cheap generic advair, Find discount advair, Earthworks and the Feedom Freedom Growers, these South Americans got a sense of how in a North American city which has also been devastated by corporate globalization, tablet advair, Discount advair, we are resisting by growing our own food, struggling to bring the neighbor back into the hood, advair cheap drug, Advair no rx, creating Peace Zones out of War zones, and redefining Work to mean makinga Life and not just a Living, advair non prescription, Advair in bangkok, .
They were thrilled, honored and encouraged to connect with grassroots Detroiters who are also reclaiming our land, community and humanity.
Reflecting on this experience, I was able to recognize and appreciate the paradigm shift in the meaning of Solidarity that globalization has made both necessary and possible. Advair online without prescription, For most of the 20th century, Solidarity has meant "Workers of the World Unite" and/or "the union makes us strong,"
But in the age of corporate globalization and the outsourcing and downsizing of jobs, Solidarity is beginning to mean connecting grassroots communities who are resisting corporate devastation and displacement by creating ways of living that give us control over our lives,.
The emergence of the Zapatistas in 1994 at Chiapas in response to NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) was the first announcement to the world that grassroots people are creating new self- healing civic groups in response to corporate globalization.
A decade later, according to one estimate by Paul Hawken in Blessed Unrest, there may be as many as half a million of these groups, most of them small and barely visible in every country around the world.
In two widely-read books, Empire (2000)and Multitude (2004), political theorists Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri emphasize the singularity or diversity of these groups. They do not fuse into some unity like "the people" or the "workers of the world." Nor are they connected in centralized organizations like the 2nd`or 3rd Internationals, as in the Marxist-Leninist era,.What they have in common is that they are each imagining and creating the new social identities, the new political subjects that will take the place of the cogs and consumers to which global capitalism seeks to reduce us,
These self-healing civic groups and communities connect mainly through networks.
So Solidarity is beginning to mean the linking or networking of these communities in North and South America and around the world. ___________________________________________
