Posted by Fredsvenn den oktober 17, 2012
Given the incessant looting of petro-minerals, the land-grabbing and the Resource Cursing that we witness so vividly in this region thanks to SA, Chinese, Brazilian, Indian and Russian capital, and given that the IMF is $100 billion richer thanks to BRICS elites’ generosity a few months ago, is it time to show some resistance to these new Deputy Sheriffs of the Washington Consensus?

We think so but would love your opinion on this messaging – and we’d love you to schedule time with Durban’s progressive community, environmental and labour movements. Join us!
