traditional left [including Halliday’s ‘hard-headed’ socialists] placed so much emphasis upon) have to be seen in a dialectical relation with the struggles against accumulation by dispossession that the social movements coalescing within the anti- and alternative globalization movements [Halliday’s ‘motley agglomeration’] are primarily focusing upon.28 Harvey’s dialectical grasp here refuses simply to privilege one tradition over the other, and retains a commitment to evaluating the social and political aims of anti-globalisation movements in relation to the continuing need

around the world. Two milestones define this period: the creation of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in 1995 and the anti-globalisation protests in Seattle, during the ‘Millennium Round’, in winter 1999. This general context was then combined with domestic, country-specific (historical) junctures and events. The purpose was to explore how the globalisation discourse was implicated in the discourses and strategies of domestic forces that attempted to redefine the public discourses of their countries. I expand on this issue in the chapters that focus on Greece and

in Producing globalisation

commemoration seems to stem from a wish to defend European culture. The invocation of tradition and distinctiveness must be understood as a protection strategy. Right-­wing parties stress the importance of heritage and tradition when warning about the alleged marginalisation of the European people through non-­European immigration or a totalitarian EU bureaucracy. Anti-­globalisation activists, on the other hand, invoke local identities to counter global capitalism and consumerism. The Scottish dreamscape – with its narrative of heroic defence – may come in useful in this

perspectives of Class War unravelled. New forms of mobilisation which came to the fore after the anti-globalisation protests in Seattle in 1999 (such as Reclaim the Streets, anti-roads protests, Earth First! and more recently the world-wide Occupy! initiative) have evoked more echoes of the activist-centred anarchist punk practice than the orthodox class perspectives of 1970s. These new radical libertarian initiatives and forms of organisations have posed new answers to the questions of agency, strategy and to the challenges of combining political autonomy with the ability

, and illustrated Marx: A User's Guide . Bernard Maris, a co-editor, was a member of an anti-globalisation movement called Attac and campaigned against austerity, corporate corruption, tax havens and the arms industry. Being on the left does not mean that one is not Islamophobic but the damaging attacks that have been launched on the journal bring to mind similar attacks on the work of Salman Rushdie after a Fatwa was declared against him in 1989. 20

The left and European integration after the crisis
Michael Holmes and Knut Roder

find a way of selling a vision of another Europe. The left might be starting to generate new ideas, but it is not yet turning that into the hard currency of votes. Notes 1 The term alter-mondialiste emerged in France as a positive alternative to the label ‘anti-globalisation’, which was often inaccurately applied to critics of globalisation. The contention was that these critics are not against greater global

as a military band might stir soldiers before battle, and of laying claim to spaces by way of impromptu street parties – a strategy similar to that of Reclaim the Streets anti-road and anti-globalisation protests in the West. There are several examples of Western rock and pop taking on a political significance in non-Western contexts. Often this is a matter of protestors seeking democratisation of their country in a manner they perceive in the West. Tas ( 2014 ), however, notes that in Turkey, where the government has sought to establish a Western style

The milieu culture of DIY punk

members participated in three ‘Stop the City’ events and organised a two-day squat gig in London. Stop the City was described as a ‘protest and carnival against war, oppression and exploitation’ that encouraged people to come to the financial district of London and use a range of creative and innovative practice to protest against capitalism and war. The demonstrations were wonderfully carnivalesque and successful in the first two instances. They can definitely be seen as the forerunners to the Anti-globalisation movement of the 1990s and 2000s, and the Occupy movement

supporter of Brexit and a spokesperson for a new English identity and nationalism (albeit a ‘green benevolent’ one). The question with which I set out has remained as yet unanswered: is it possible to embrace a notion of identity which is based upon the specificity, particularity and character of place and local identity under the sign of an anti-globalisation environmentalism without getting dangerously close to the navel-gazing of nativist thinking and nationalism and a rhetoric of exclusion endorsed by right-wing Brexit supporters and populists all over Europe and

The challenge of Dónal Óg Cusack’s ‘coming out’ to heteronormativity in contemporary Irish culture and society

communitarian anti-globalisation. As Cronin ( 2007 ) cogently points out, it is, paradoxically, the GAA’s ostensible rejection of the commodification of its players’ bodies and insistence on amateurism that has proved so appealing to corporate sponsors such as Bank of Ireland, Guinness, Vodafone, ESB and AIB. Indeed, all of the recent television and billboard advertising campaigns for the GAA and its sponsors are underpinned by a vision of Irish masculinity that is deeply communal, rural, anti-individualistic, amateurist and untainted by the excesses of modern consumerism
