Violence as a Tool of Order and Change: The War onTerrorism and the Antiglobalization Movement


September 11, it is said, has changed everything. However true or not this may be—and I tend to think that it is not very true at all—one thing it certainly should have changed is the loose manner in which the adjective "violent" has been appended to recent antiglobalization protests. Especially for a conference such as this one—conceived in the wake of the Québec City events of last year and designed to shed light on the nature of the challenge posed to capitalist democracies by the new antiglobalization movement—the horrific and deadly terrorist attack on New York and Washington, D.C., and the scale of state violence unleashed—literally from on high—by the war on terrorism, certainly put this loose usage in stark perspective.

It should be noted that this was a "mainstream" conference, at which the former head of Canada`s security service, senior members of Québec`s police force, and various politicians and civil libertarian lawyers, as well as social movement and antiglobalization activists, were also invited to speak. This address at such a venue was therefore intended to offer a sense of perspective from the left at a tricky and dangerous moment when imperial security defines the role of the state.
