Summary: Rumble in Mumbai documents the World Social Forum held in Mumbai, India in January, 2004. Over 100,000 people attended this year's forum, all looking to build solidarity--and a better world. With interviewees like Shirin Ebadi, Jose Bove, Nawal Saadawi, and Walden Bello, and featuring the eloquent speeches of Arundhati Roy, Mustafa Barghouti, Jeremy Corbyn, and Irene Khan, Rumble in Mumbai is packed with high-caliber critiques of neo-liberalism gone awry, and damning indictments of the ill effects of globalization. And as with the forum itself, marginalized voices are here given a platform to air their grievances: Dalit rights, handloom weaver unionization, South Asian LGBT issues, communalism and secretarianism, the plight of Palestinians living in the shadow of a new Apartheid wall--these issues and many more are explored.
