> crafts, industries and elsewhere to our lives, challenging political and
> economic structures that continue to exploit them
> there was also this news from India with interesting implications, though
> not necessarily challenging capitalist markets per se, and with some state

> We hope to start a webinar/online dialogue series soon, one global thrugh

> Sangam ... watch this space for announcements soon!
