Janeen Antoine interviews IFG founder Jerry Mander, Victoria-Tauli-Corpuz and Jeanette Armstrong on the soon to be released book, "Paradigm Wars: Indigenous Peoples’ Resistance to Globalization."
Paradigm Wars gives firsthand reports by twenty-five indigenous and nonindigenous writers. The book details the devastating impacts of extractive industries and bioprospecting, the degrading of cultural artifacts and languages, even the damage done by some well-meaning conservation groups. The book also highlights how indigenous communities are strongly resisting this onslaught, often with amazing success. Anyone concerned with environmental or social justice will find inspiration in their resistance.
