Mostly the left, the greens and the anti-globists?
This cause used to have a broader support than that, didn't it?
Where are the small companies? There are _some_ right-wing
politicians who are opposed to this, right?
I'm glad the left, the greens and the anti-globalists are with
us on this, but I would like to see a pan-political opposition.
This case could fit almost any party's agenda, with the right
"spin" put to it. Calling us "extremists" ought to be an absurd
lie. Can we make it so?
