> Two summits on globalization -- the World Economic Forum in Davos,
> Switzerland and the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil -- faced
> off this past week in a symbolic battle for the planet's future.
> Though the Davos meetings were disrupted by massive citizen protests and
> police violence, and the Porto Alegre meetings were a turning point in
> the "globalization from below" movement, the mainstream media hardly
> reported on either gathering. AlterNet has now set up a special coverage
> page about the Forums, bringing together insightful views from
> participants, critics and observers:

> Please pass this around to any friends or coworkers interested in issues
> of globalization and democracy. And if you know of any articles or links
> we're missing, please feel free to pass them along.
