By the end of the 20th century, the world was turned into a small village through globalization. Even though the process of globalization was beneficial to most of the people around the world, not everyone was happy about it. There were movements in the world, which were against the spread and interrelation of people. These groups were termed as anti-globalization movement. They rose into credibility in the late twentieth century. The primary aims of these movements were to combat globalization of the corporate economic activities as well as all of the exploration of the development, which could have resulted from such activities. The people in these activities took part in the movement generally wanted to promote as well as create the awareness for the human rights in the NGO’s while at the same time advocating for social alternatives to capitalism. Ant globalization movements opposed globalization, which is a movement that was opposed by many though their primary purpose was to protect the interest of the public along with the ecosystems of the world from the damaging effect of globalization.
Globalization was supported by many people most of which were workers, the poor and youths. These people were fighting for globalization because they believed was good for the world. The worker could easily move around the world due to globalization. The anti-globalization movement entered into a struggle with these workers, environmentalist, as well as most of the world on the development and industrialization of the world, which strived to enhance social along with economic justice. Their base of argument was that globalization affected the control of individuals over their social as well as economic justice. The activist if anti-globalization came from all the spheres of an organization such as political parties, non-governmental organizations, trade unions, as well as revolutionary fronts.
Anti-globalization activist was combining diverse modes of action, which included civil disobedience, public education, and marches, and lobbying. The movement included a global justice movement opposed globalization in a way that they restricted the expansion of organizations power across the world thus providing more focus on the other parts of the world rather than the local communities. These movements are fighting for democracy and rights of the people in the local societies. These movements did a thorough analysis of the root causes of all the social problems that are connected to free market capitalism. The issues that were addressed are inequality, poverty, hunger, and ecological destruction.
Globalization movements strived to show the advantages the world adopting free movement around the world. They proved that allowing free movement enable interaction of culture and improved the way organizations performed their businesses. Globalization enabled easier outsourcing of task in companies while increasing uniformity. There were numerous differences among the anti-globalization activist and the rest of the world, but these struggles are what led to the development of the world.
In conclusion, anti-globalization movement at the moment is struggling to regain control from a transnational movement that fought for globalization. These organizations have become global elites since they benefited from the global economy as compared to their counterpart who believed that globalization was a source of numerous social problems. However, what makes this anti-globalization movement different is the ability to coordinate across wide distances as well as increased levels of diversity. Both anti-globalization and globalization movement need each other to push the world above its limits.
