Struggles for Justice in Canada and Mexico
Themes and Theories about Social Mobilization
Case studies of Canadian and Mexican communities struggling for justice illustrate social mobilization and community organizing theory.
Struggles for Justice in Canada and Mexico examines Canadian and Mexican communities engaged in collective action to address problems related to the context of aggressive capitalism, which favours economic freedom of the powerful over the needs of people and the planet. The book’s several case examples portray income-generating projects; action to promote health, adequate housing, and a safe environment (including resistance to mining); women’s resource and advocacy programs; and grassroots support organizations and independent organizers.
