Over the last ten years social movements of the marginalized have acquired remarkable public visibility and political traction. Movements based on sectors that were previously assumed to have been superseded, left behind by the march of history, have come to claim central significance in the unfolding drama of corporate-led globalization. Subsistence peasants, urban pOOf, indigenous peoples, domestic workers, migrants, and others, have gained a consciousness and capacity to act in the face of commodifYing pressures imposed through market globalism. In the process they have forged new strategic alignments, mounting counter-globalist challenges that have seriously disrupted globalist prescriptions. This paper addresses some of these themes, discussing how counter-globalist agency may now be generating new post-globalist ideological orientations.
