Abstract: Today, anybody is free to protest against anything they please: politics, fashion, the latest movie, education, globalization…. Globalization, a relatively new word in our vocabulary, a word so new that the first versions of Microsoft Word do not even recognize, is a world-wide phenomenon many agree with while some strongly criticize. Some of these protests end up as quite big social issues, like the demonstrations against the 6th WTO Ministerial Conference in December of 2005, others in blood-baths and mass arrests, as many of us witnessed the “Battle of Seattle”. In this article we aim to underline some of the major aspects of the anti-globalization movement, a social movement sustained by those who, understanding more or less this so-called new world-order, have chosen to fight against it.
