:: The World Economic Forum
Some very important people are missing from the headlines and the
stories of the world's most influential economic institutions like the
International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the
Free Trade Area of the Americas. The real players--corporate
representatives--meet for the World Economic Forum (WEF) this year in
New York City with minimal remote press access. Teach-ins and protests
planned in New York City get to the heart of corporate globalization and
US economic power.
:: The World Social Forum
Also missing from the headlines are the alternatives devised by
grassroots organizations and the world's non-elites. Set to happen at
the same time as the WEF is the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre,
Brazil, a conference exploring such alternatives to an increasingly
standard corporate agenda.
:: The Munich Conference on Security Policy
This annual meeting brings together the government officials and the
military of NATO and the EU. Much of the coalition behind the military
coalitions that brought us the wars in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Iraq are
forged in conferences like this security conference. The last few
months have seen military coalition involvement from Japan and Germany
unprecedented since WWII. European activists are planning to bring
their message held by most of the world: not to expand the "War on
Terrorism" to more countries.

institutions and their impact on democratic structures, then streaming
it over the internet. Likewise, the IMC will produce live breaking
