Anti-globalization protests seem to have been incorrectly labeled. The protest are in themselves globalized entities. People protesting a variety of different issues like world trade laws, national debts, and international corporations have all been lumped under the label anti-globalization when really, each individual protest is much more nuanced. Protests, many working transnationally, are not inherently anti-globalization. So, why are they labeled as such? The protests and activism can be more accurately described as anti the effects of globalization. Globalization, when defined as “growth to a global or worldwide scale,” is neither inherently positive or negative. However, the effects can be. Therefore, it’s oxymoronic to define many anti-globalization protests as anti globalization. These protests are global, and are not about globalization. The protestes are about how the world is reacting to the new found scale of its interactions.
