Does Increasing Public Awareness of the Anti-Globalization Movement Affect it's Growth? (Case Study of the Movement Using Indymedia's Archives for 2002) ----- Richard E. Martin 15 Nov 2005 04:30 GMT ------- Final Thesis Copy - (pdf)

In this thesis, I utilize the 2002 archives of the Independent Media Center to measure the growth of the anti-globalization movement and attempt to determine whether this growth is correlated to media coverage of anti-globalization related events in the same year.

This thesis will also be available free of charge on the University of South Florida's library website after Fall 2005 Graduation has passed. You can search the library archives for it using the following link: ib.usf.edu/usflibraries/search_etd.html

/827915 A petition against awarding the Nobel Prize to two warmongers ---- peacemaker, 14.11.2005 21:15
The Nobel Prize committee's reasoning that the Professors Robert J. Aumann and Thomas C. Schelling have "enhanced our understanding of conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis" is completely cynical. This considering Prof. Schelling's role in the Vietnam War and the Professor Aumann's hawkish "scientific" interpretations of the Middle East conflict and his belligerent recommendations for a "solution": No to efforts to end the conflict ASAP, Yes to Israeli nuclear arsenal, etc.

Neocon poster girl can't read or write but got famous for filing a rape (by Talibanoid) complaint :::::: Mukhtar Mai has been cast for a lead role in a narrative already written by a neo-con agenda. To activists she may be the icon of the global woman’s movement against patriarchy, but she will quickly be reified into whatever the prevailing powers need her to be, for the moment, a victim of fundamentalism. No one can blame this poor woman simply seeking justice and a peaceful life for accepting this role. However, real change will come when those activists, turned brokers, realize that the only way to get real justice for all is not to “pull strings”, but to break strings.
