The Cotton Campaign (download here, 8 pages)

"The piece gives something of the political history of cotton from wild plant to industrial commodity. It goes without saying that all our work targets the residual effects of European colonization. These in turn are amplified by the current global neo-liberal regime, and its patriarchal capitalist financial institutions - the World Bank and World Trade Organization (WTO). In the U.S. and European Union cotton is a small part of economic activity. But in West Africa it is critical."
