4th World War – taken from a speech by Marcos calling the war against globalization the 4th World War – is a brief, documentary of radical resistance to global capitalism
Despite the titanic struggles of dispossessed peoples around the world, the wealth of nations continues to reside in fewer and fewer hands. The economies of poor countries collapse under vicious IMF policies, and capitalism’s global ‘clubs’ thrive ever and ever upward. Meanwhile, people keep struggling, ultimately downward.From the front-lines of conflicts in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Palestine, Korea, ‘the North’ from Seattle to Genova, and the ‘War on Terror’ in New York, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
It is the story of men and women around the world who resist being annihilated in this war.
