NGOs and Social & Economic Justice

In recent years, protesters have turned out in force at almost every major international forum or summit, especially the G7/G8 meetings and the meetings of the World Bank, the IMF and the WTO. Activist groups have mobilized large numbers to oppose business-driven globalization, war and undemocratic decision making, and to press for global peace and justice. In this struggle, groups such as NGOs and trade unions, who traditionally did not share a common agendas, came together to work towards common goals.
