Description: The International Center for Technology Assessment (ICTA) is an anti-capitalist organization fighting against technology in general on the rationale that technology corrupts spiritual and emotional life. ICTA primarily fights against biotechnology, secondarily against global warming, pollution, overpopulation, globalization. ICTA cooperates on anti-technology projects managed by Fenton Communications, Washington, D.C.'s premiere anti-capitalist public relations firm. ICTA is linked by shared directors with the Center for Food Safety, the Turning Point Project, and the International Forum on Globalization. ICTA is virtually the instrument of Douglas Tompkins and his Foundation for Deep Ecology, which is the group's first and biggest funder.
