(Hope I posted in the right forum, newbie here )
Ever since seeing the documentary The Corporation (www.thecorporation.tv), I've been quite interested in some forms of left-wing politics- e.g worker's and consumer's rights. Currently I'm reading Naomi Klein's 'No Logo', Eric Schlosser's 'Fast Food Nation' and Noam Chomsky's 'Media control: the spectacular achievements of propaganda'. Anyone can recommend some more, particularly ones concentrating on global issues (the ones I'm reading are rather US-centred)? I also want to participate in some activist activities, but there's a lack in Hong Kong (where I live)- can anyone give some 'global' activity suggestions please?

hehe i can imagine there would be a lack of public activism in hong kong
Your best bet is probably to sign any online petition that comes your way or to visit a site like this:
Indy Media World
That tells you of all general left wing campaigns going on in the world...
I'm sorry I can't think of any 'global' books at the moment, but if I do I'll post again.

You could try Will Hutton's The World We're In. It's not massively socialist and it's pretty heavy going, but it's good for global economics...
