"Taking Control" Internet List Server

New Members Welcome

One of the practical initiatives that came out of the 1998 Taking Control: The Fightback Against Transnational Corporate Power Conference was the creation of the Taking Control list server (electronic discussion group). It serves as a useful (and private) electronic network for circulating and discussing material relevant to the fightback against transnational corporate power. For instance, CAFCA regularly sends out press releases and other material through Taking Control.

If you’re interested, then e-mail us at: cafca@chch.planet.org.nz

Membership is free but conditions apply.

And, on the subject of new members, we believe the most effective means of getting our message around is by word of mouth. If you’ve got friends or workmates whom you think are likely to join CAFCA or be interested in what we have to offer, then put them in touch with us. We’re always ready to welcome new members. You, our existing members, are our most effective recruiters.

Focus on the Corporation scrutinises the transnational corporation – the most powerful institution of our time. Once a week, it reports and comments critically on corporate actions, plans, abuses and trends. Written with a sharp edge and occasional irreverence, Focus on the Corporation covers:

  • Globalisation and corporate power;
  • The double standards which excuse corporations for behaviour (e.g., causing injury, accepting welfare) widely considered criminal or shameful when done by individuals;
  • Trends in corporate economic blackmail, political influence and workplace organisation;
  • Industry-wide efforts to escape regulation, silence critics, employ new technologies or consolidate business among a few companies;
  • Specific, extreme examples of corporate abuses: destruction of communities, trampling of democracy, poisoning of air and water; and
  • The corporatisation of our culture.
