the "Over My Dead Body" project (2002)

The "Over My Dead Body" project is a world wide, online, virtual demonstration, politicising the major themes of globalisation and the economy, the environment, etc. The federating platform is the promotion of "the politics of generosity" to unblock the stranglehold of financial and nationalist self-interest upon the world's destiny.

Full Description

The "Over My Dead Body" project is a world wide, online, virtual demonstration, politicising the major themes of globalisation and the economy, the environment, etc. The federating platform is the promotion of "the politics of generosity" to unblock the stranglehold of financial and nationalist self-interest upon the world's destiny. It is evident that the current war programmed against Iraq enters within a definition of corporate imperialism: thus protest against the war is part of the "Over My Dead Body" project's agenda.

People are invited to participate, and are represented symbolically in the demonstration by their name, place of residence, and if they so wish, photo, and virtual placard. Thus people from the four corners of the globe may march together, and in this way the demo is a powerful and active metaphor for fraternity. Take a moment to watch people pass by, seeing where they come from and what they say. The site also contains a section called "The State of Things", which presents an evolving portrait of the world today. The "About" section contains the project Manifesto, and other information.

If you agree with what the project represents - come join the demo with us! And please forward this message to your family, your friends, your colleagues, your mailing list... The presence of each person is important: a trickle becomes a torrent that becomes a tidal wave, rolling for change.
