Last week comrades of the IMT from several
countries intervened very successfully at the European Social Forum
in Malmö, Sweden, finding an audience for their ideas and
making contacts with new layers of activists.
As the recent Rome
summit of the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) fades
from the headlines (as few as they were in the U.S.), the workers and peasants
of the world, and particularly those of the so-called Third World, are once
again left to fend for themselves.
