Chapter Summary

Despite the nearly exclusive treatment that is given to the environmental movement, it is hoped that the underlying message presented in this chapter is bigger than environmentalism as an independent movement. At the beginning of 2009, the world found itself embroiled in a resurgence of the bloody conflict against Palestinians, a global financial crisis, a continuing humanitarian catastrophe in Darfur, two unmanageable wars of United States (USA) imperialism, and intractable ethnic and gender inequalities that have plagued the history of humanity. Another important component of environmentalism is the "environmental justice" movement (EJM). One of the most popular forms of environmental justice found in the global South is the fight against the privatization and control of water. The World Social Forum ("WSF") is a cross between a movement and an open deliberative space, where activists from around the world gather to discuss social issues to whatever capacity they choose.

Keywords: "environmental justice" movement (EJM); global movement; United States (USA) imperialism; World Social Forum (WSF)
