Naomi Klein


Naomi Klein (born May 5, 1970) is a Canadian journalist, author and activist. In 2000, Klein published the book No Logo, which for many became a manifesto of the anti-globalization movement. This movement had shut down the WTO Meeting of 1999 one month before the release of No Logo. Paradoxically, the book is not about trademark law but lambasts brand-oriented consumer culture by describing the operations of large corporations. Their products, she argues, turn people into walking billboards. Read more on Last.fm

This movement had shut down the WTO Meeting of 1999 one month before the release of No Logo. Paradoxically, the book is not about trademark law but lambasts brand-oriented consumer culture by describing the operations of large corporations.

Their products, she argues, turn people into walking billboards. These corporations are also often guilty of exploiting workers in the world's poorest countries in pursuit of ever-greater profits, she writes. Klein criticized Nike so much in the book that it became one of the first publications to receive feedback from the company. In 2002 Klein published Fences and Windows, a collection of articles and speeches she had written on behalf of the anti-globalization movement (all proceeds from the book go to benefit activist organizations through The Fences and Windows Fund). Klein also contributes to The Nation, In These Times, Canada's The Globe and Mail, This Magazine, and The Guardian. She has continued to write on various current issues, such as the war in Iraq.

In a September 2004 article for Harper's Magazine entitled "Baghdad Year Zero: Pillaging Iraq in pursuit of a neocon utopia", she argues that, contrary to popular belief and criticisms, the Bush administration did have a clear plan for post-invasion Iraq, which was to build a fully unconstrained free market economy. She describes plans to allow foreigners to extract wealth from Iraq, and the methods used to achieve those goals. Also in 2004, Klein and her husband, Canadian television journalist Avi Lewis, released a documentary film called The Take, which profiled a group of former employees of a bankrupt foundry in Argentina. The workers took over the closed plant and resumed production, operating as a collective. Read more on Last.fm.
