In the last few decades, the study of globalization has occupied a central position in various scholarly endeavors in the field of social sciences. Sociologists, historians, political scientists, as well as globalization scholars discuss its origins, course of development, and resultant outcomes in respective fields of research (Albrow 1996, Robertson 1992). In line with this scholarly inquiry, social movement scholars have also paid attention to recent movement actions on a global scale. Everincreasing literature on global activism testifies to this research effort (Bandy and Smith 2005, Della Porta et al. 2006).
