“The critique of globalisation came from the Left, but it was the Right that made it a success in organising – the Right ate the Left’s lunch.”
This week, Grace Blakeley is joined by Walden Bello, academic, author, human rights campaigner and former member of the Filipino House of Representatives.
The show discusses the history of the Philippines, Bello’s opposition to the brutal Marcos dictatorship, his longstanding fight against US imperialism and neoliberal globalisation (including in breaking into the offices of the World Bank to steal confidential documents), as well as how Covid-19 is affecting the Philippines.
