The following announcement was posted on "GloboList" (a yahoo group) by Joseph Smith, the list owner. Joseph asked that this news be circulated widely so feel free to forward to other lists and to otherwise spread the news. In solidarity, Jerry --------------------------- Hi, I wanted to let folks know about a newly expanded web-based project involving a number of Globolisters. The project is called Gloves Off: Bare-Fisted Political Economy. Gloves Off aims to encourage and extend an analysis of radical political economy among those active within and in solidarity with the global justice, anti-war and other solidarity movements. The website includes an exciting mix of interviews, insightful articles and a running weblog of current issues. There is also a manifesto calling for action in the year ahead. Gloves Off was started by Sara Burke in the wake of last February's unprecedented worldwide protests opposing the looming Anglo-US war on Iraq. Last summer Sara was joined by Claudio Puty and the site was expanded. Shortly before marking it's first year the Gloves Off editorial collective was expanded to include Paul Cooney, Melissa Mahoney and myself. It is safe to say that the Gloves Off group was energized by its first meeting and we are working on a new issue (top page) that will go out on March 20th. Finally, I want to say that I am personally very excited about working with Sara, Claudio, Paul and Melissa on Gloves Off. Some of you may be aware that with the help of Sander, Steve and Sara, I was looking at setting up some sort of blog companion to the Globolist. Well, Gloves Off serves the purpose of a 'globoblog' and then some. It represents an extension of the kind of analysis and commentary that has appeared on this list and it offers new opportunities for political and intellectual engagement. It is my hope that folks on this list -- there are 37 of us these days -- consider Gloves Off a sister project and find ways to get engaged there as well. joe Visit Gloves off at: http://www.glovesoff.org/ Don't forget to bookmark us!
