Links: Anti-corporate Campaigning

 

 

Across the world, in nations both rich and impoverished, citizens are taking courageous and creative action to challenge the unchecked power of corporations. We live in a world of many powerful Goliaths, but many courageous Davids as well. Here are links to some of the people, organizations, and campaigns challenging corporate power. 

The following organizations were involved in the campaigns featured in Beating Goliath, our resource for anti-corporate campaigners which contains a range of case studies of past and present battles against corporate power, as well as links to many other useful campaigner tools and resources.

We are on the lookout for more anti-corporate campaigners that could be listed here. If you know something we should know about, please write to contact@democracyctr.org.
