Description of Resource Rebels.

Native peoples throughout the globe are facing extinction due to the greed of mining and oil companies. As the energy crisis intensifies, their plight sounds the alarm to all those concerned about the prospect of global warming, genocide, and preventable eco-disasters. Resource Rebels traces the development of multiracial transnational movements in the US, Asia, Africa and Latin America that are countering resource extraction and providing direction for environmentalists and anticapitalists alike.
