ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses how the terrorist attacks on the U.S. on September 11, 2001 affected protest movements against corporate power. He states that in 1999, there was a growing protest against globalization, but that after the attacks they petered out. He believes this was because people felt they had to unite against a common, foreign enemy. He claims that while the groups which worked against globalization remain, their voices have been drowned out by other concerns.
