Rethinking Globalisation:
A new blog from Global Trade Watch

Rethinking Globalisation is a space for people to discuss issues and ideas about globalisation, global trade and global justice; to discuss and debate how the global economic system is affecting people and the environment; and to think about how more ecologically-sustainable, democratic and people-centred economic systems might be possible.

We’ll try to post new material every few days - please visit the blog regularly and join the debate!

Check out GTW's Rethinking Globalisation blog here.

Global Trade Watch Presents:
Squeezed: The Cost of Free Trade in the Asia-Pacific

Filmed on location in Thailand and the Philippines in July 2007, Squeezed tells the story of how free trade agreements and globalisation are changing the lives of millions of people living in the Asia-Pacific region.

Featuring interviews with farmers, workers and slum-dwellers, the film travels across the landscapes of Asia, from the lush rice paddies of Thailand to squatter settlements perched on a rubbish dump in urban Manila.

A short film of contrasts and contradictions, Squeezed is an emotional document of the impact of globalisation on people in the Asia-Pacific, and their responses to it.

Buy Squeezed on DVD for only $10 (+ p&h) here!
