Corporate Greed In the Crosshairs: Naomi Klein, 'No Logo' NAOMI KLEIN’S 1999 book “No Logo” brought attention to a groundswell of activism that culminated at the protest against the World Trade Organization in Seattle that year.

Corporate Greed In the Crosshairs: Naomi Klein, 'No Logo'

Now, Klein — who also wrote the best-selling “The Shock Doctrine” — is re-releasing “No Logo” with a new introduction which focuses on how President Obama has crafted his political message into a powerful brand. » EXPRESS: When you started working on “No Logo,” what was your intent?» KLEIN: It seemed to make sense to me that we were in an age where corporations were growing more popular than governments and that the response would be a movement focused on corporations more than governments, and I just started writing about it.

And when I was doing the research, people would say, “What are you talking about? There is no anti-corporate activism.” Naomi Klein nous parle de rareté et d’abondance. Je viens de tomber sur ce bout du discours de Naomi Klein qu’elle a fait à Wall street dans le mouvement Occupy Wall street Nous savons tous, ou du moins nous sentons que le monde est à l’envers : nous agissons comme s’il n’y avait pas de limites à ce qui, en réalité, n’est pas renouvelable – les combustibles fossiles et l’espace atmosphérique pour absorber leurs émissions.

Naomi Klein nous parle de rareté et d’abondance

Et nous agissons comme s’il y avait des limites strictes et inflexibles à ce qui, en réalité, est abondant – les ressources financières pour construire la société dont nous avons besoin. Democracy Now! Naomi Klein : « Le mouvement Occupons Wall Street est actuellement la chose la plus importante au monde » - Mobilisations. J’ai été honorée d’être invitée à parler [le 29 septembre] devant les manifestants d’Occupons Wall Street.

Naomi Klein : « Le mouvement Occupons Wall Street est actuellement la chose la plus importante au monde » - Mobilisations

La sonorisation ayant été (honteusement) interdite, tout ce que je disais devait être répété par des centaines de personnes, pour que tous entendent (un système de « microphone humain »). Ce que j’ai dit sur la place de la Liberté a donc été très court. Voici la version longue de ce discours [publiée initialement en anglais dans Occupy Wall Street Journal]. Je vous aime. Et je ne dis pas cela pour que des centaines d’entre vous me répondent en criant « je vous aime ». Hier, un des orateurs du rassemblement syndical a déclaré : « Nous nous sommes trouvés. » Ce sentiment saisit bien la beauté de ce qui se crée ici.

S’il y a une chose que je sais, c’est que les 1 % [les plus riches] aiment les crises. Et une seule chose peut bloquer cette stratégie. NAOMI KLEIN ET LA CRISE FINANCIÈRE - L’INTÉGRAL. Nous avons pu rencontrer Naomi Klein, cette journaliste et écrivaine canadienne, auteure du livre “No Logo”, et plus récemment de “ la stratégie du choc ” (2007, Actes Sud). Obama's Big Silence: The Race Question. Published in The Guardian Americans began the summer still celebrating the dawn of a "post-racial" era.

Obama's Big Silence: The Race Question

They are ending it under no such illusion. The summer of 2009 was all about race, beginning with Republican claims that Sonia Sotomayor, Barack Obama's nominee to the US Supreme Court, was "racist" against whites. Then, just as that scandal was dying down, up popped "the Gates controversy", the furore over the president's response to the arrest of African American academic Henry Louis Gates Jr in his own home. Obama's remark that the police had acted "stupidly" was evidence, according to massively popular Fox News host Glenn Beck, that the president "has a deep-seated hatred for white people". Obama's supposed racism gave a jolt of energy to the fringe movement that claims he has been carrying out a lifelong conspiracy to cover up his (fictional) African birth.

There is at least one significant difference, however. They were mistaken. That was 9 September 2001. Naomi Klein: Disaster Capitalism. No Logo. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

Naomi Klein: Real Change Depends on Stopping the Bailout Profite

It was, without question, the moment when the economic crisis hit Wall Street. Up to that point, things weren't looking all that good for Barack Obama. The Democratic National Convention barely delivered a bump, while the appointment of Sarah Palin seemed to have shifted the momentum decisively over to John McCain. Then, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac failed, followed by insurance giant AIG, then Lehman Brothers. It was in this moment of economic vertigo that Obama found a new language.

N.Klein: la COP-15 au détecteur de mensonges

La journaliste canadienne, auteure en 2007 de "The shock doctrine - La montée du capitalisme du désastre", n'a pas mâché ses mots, devant le "contre-sommet" de Copenhague, contre la responsabilité du capitalisme dans la crise climatique.

Shock Doctrine and the new new left. The marquee outside the Bloor Cinema, in Toronto, advertised “The Last Mistress” at four, “Naomi Klein—the Shock Doctrine” at seven, and “Little Shop of Horrors” at nine-thirty. It was a warmish night. The falafel shop next door was doing a brisk business. A line of people holding tickets to the Naomi Klein event stretched to the end of the block and around the corner. Outside the entrance to the cinema, a middle-aged man and an elderly woman paced up and down selling copies of Socialist Action for a dollar.

(The September issue included articles about capitalism’s contradictions, class war in Bolivia, and a commentary by Mumia Abu-Jamal—a regular feature.) “We apologize for starting late, but it’s typical activist time, so I’m sure you’re used to it,” a young woman organizer said from the stage. Klein ascended the stage. She had spent the day curled up on the blue sofa in her living room, watching CNN while she waited restlessly to hear what would happen in Washington. La stratégie du choc
