LINKS

Here you find a list of 250 websites of mostly social movements, Non Governmental Organizations (NGO's), independent media and some political parties, who work in the fields of alternative globalization, international solidarity, the environment, human rights and social justice, agriculture and global foodsecurity, protection of natural areas (in particular primary rainforests), indigenous people, religions, animal welfare and sustainable development in general.
Some of these organizations focus on Trans National Companies, others on national governments, or on the Worldbank, IMF, WTO, consumers, or concious citizens.

At the end you will find 'the other side', the official websites of the Worldbank, IMF, WTO, EU (as long as their neoliberal policy dominates so clearly above social and environmental policy) and groups of TNC's.

* The organizations are placed in alphabetical order. In general I will give the names and the key issues in English, except for the Dutch websites (in Dutch).
* !! : means that I recommend these organizations in particular because I found very good information on their websites, or because I'am (or was) personally involved in these organizations.
