It's a senseless play on words.

The buzzword globalization has a lot of connotations.  Mass media is
using this buzzword with a lot of meanings, making the speech of the
anti-globalization movement apparently void.

What the anti-globalization movement is seeking is better understood if
you read the meaning of the word globalización in a Spanish dictionary
<http://buscon.rae.es/draeI/SrvltGUIBusUsual?LEMA=globalización>:

| globalización. 
|   
|  1. f. Tendencia de los mercados y de las empresas a extenderse, 
|  alcanzando una dimensión mundial que sobrepasa las fronteras 
|  nacionales.
