In this startling, politically astute graphic novel, Gord Hill documents the history of capitalism as well as anti-capitalist and anti-globalization movements around the world, from the 1999 “Battle of Seattle” against the World Trade Organization to the Toronto G20 summit in 2010. Thedramatic accounts trace the global origins of public protests against those in power, then depict recent events based on eyewitness testimony; they paint a vivid and historically accurate picture of activists who bring the crimes of governments and multinationals to the world’s attention.
As the “Occupy” movements around the world unfold, The Anti-Capitalist Resistance Comic Book is a deft, eye-opening look at the new class warfare, and those brave enough to wage the battle.
