Independent civil society activists

THE message global activist Kumi Naidoo, the former head of CIVICUS, had for the Pacific regional civil society activists couldn't have been more succinct.

His message to stay independent (FT 10/12) of big corporations and government is the critical challenge for activists fighting for a better world .

The existing economic and political order has failed to deliver such a just world to the many.

Instead it has facilitated an enabling environment for corporate greed and the obscene affluence of the few.

There is now a need for a radical paradigm change.

It is the challenge for activists to be the vanguard of that change.
