Hace algunos días, al conocerse el resultado de las elecciones municipales celebradas en Venezuela, pocos repararon en el llamado urgente que Nicolás Maduro, les hizo a sus aliados para definir conjuntamente metas y estrategias. Rafael Uzcátegui, líder de Patria Para Todos, PPT, un minoritario partido chavista, mostró enseguida su disposición a atender este llamado aunque añadió que, en el pasado, esos encuentros ya habían tenido lugar y, sin embargo, no habían servido para mucho. Elocuente. ... read full story / add a comment

The recent elections in Nepal appear to spell a heavy retreat for the country’s Maoist movement. After initiating a People’s War in 1996 that lasted ten years and saw it in control of the majority of the countryside, the popular Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) formed a front with mainstream political parties to overthrow the monarchy and institute a democratic republic in the 2006 People’s Movement. Thereafter, the CPN(Maoist) emerged as the largest party in the 2008 Constituent Assembly (CA) elections. ... read full story / add a comment

Interestingly enough only 226 out of the 601 Constituent Assembly seats are directly elected. That is, the majority of seats are elected through a proportional voting system. ... read full story / add a comment

Lo que hemos vivido los últimos días en Honduras merece un análisis mucho más profundo, pero a modo de reflexión preliminar y síntesis, podemos decir que la voluntad mayoritaria de refundar el país manifestada por el pueblo hondureño ha sido cercenada por las élites políticas y económicas. Todo ello además sufriendo un nivel de injerencia por parte de la Embajada de Estados Unidos nunca visto antes. ... read full story / add a comment

Para quienes seguimos de cerca el proceso de la desintegración social y la disolución del aparente Estado hondureño, no es ninguna novedad que el Tribunal Supremo Electoral (TSE, presidido por un ex diputado del Partido Nacional) declare como ganador de las elecciones nacionales al neoliberal Juan Orlando Hernández, incluso antes del 100% del escrutinio de las urnas. ... read full story / add a comment

venezuela / colombia / la izquierda / non-anarchist press Thursday August 22, 2013 - 19:49 by Jaime Caycedo Turriago
Hay un nuevo momento de la realidad colombiana marcado por la creciente movilización de la inconformidad y la protesta, popular y cívica. El predominio del conflicto social que separa al establecimiento de las grandes mayorías trabajadoras, campesinas, indígenas y afrodescendientes de las periferias rurales y agromineras pone en escena la urgencia de cambios largamente represados y convertidos en dogmas inamovibles por la derecha gobernante. Aún para los más refractarios en comprender la integralidad compleja que conecta la guerra contrainsurgente del Estado y los retrocesos evidentes en materia de política agraria, minera, laboral, en salud, pensional y ambiental, para beneficio exclusivo del gran capital, de la tercerización y la corrupción, la lucha popular refresca y esclarece las contradicciones profundas de la sociedad y el Estado.

Introduction: The Limits of a Good Idea

It started as a good idea. Rather than taking the path of the old Latin American left, in the form of the guerrilla movement, or the Stalinist party, Brazil's Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores, PT), aided by strong union and social movements, decided to try something new. The challenge was to somehow combine the institutions of liberal democracy with popular participation by communities and movements. The answer eventually became participatory budgeting (PB). Introduced in the city of Porto Alegre in 1999, PB was a highly innovative experiment in co-management and de-centralization (Weyh, 2011). It allowed communities of diverse political stripes to democratically manage a small portion of their city's budget. Not only did this result in more and better services for poor communities, it also opened a space where people could learn new democratic skills and build new solidarities. In PB, a virtuous cycle of democracy was unleashed: the more people participated, the more people learned to participate. Add to this, a number of poverty reducing programs at the national level, such as Bolsa Familia, and you suddenly had a new path to social transformation: peaceful, gradual and pluralist. ... read full story / add a comment

The mass movements starting in June 2013 were the largest and most significant protests in Brazil in a generation, and they have shaken up the country's political system. Their explosive growth, size and extraordinary reach caught everyone – the left, the right, and the government – by surprise. This article examines these movements in light of the achievements and shortcomings of the democratic transition, in the mid-1980s, and the experience of the federal administrations led by the Workers’ Party since 2003. ... read full story / add a comment

Por encima de las divergencias de opinión y enfoque, una ojeada a la prensa nacional permite formarse una idea del país en que vivimos. El 6 de julio, por ejemplo, reviso la relación periodística del día anterior y no puedo menos que intentar un breve comentario al respecto.

Recientemente se ha puesto de moda ser de la CIA o haberlo sido. En los últimos meses quienes han asumido posturas críticas y comprometidas dentro del proceso revolucionario son descalificados, incluso por altos y altas dirigentes del proceso revolucionario, acusados de ser pagados por la CIA, por decir aquellas cosas que pretenden defender o advertir problemas dentro de la revolución o citar el "Golpe de Timón" del 20 de octubre de 2012 expresado por el Comandante Chávez, así como también algunos actores de la oposición han sido señalados de ser agentes de inteligencia del gobierno de los Estados Unidos, algunos con pruebas del financiamiento de la Usaid y otros simplemente porque está de moda ser de la CIA. ... read full story / add a comment

The Gezi Park protests in Istanbul have been the center of attention not only in Turkey but the whole world during the last few weeks. This has been a revolt unforeseeable in terms of its scale, influence, the intensity of its resentment, and the courage, determination, and self-confidence of masses of people, many with no previous political affiliation and experience. It is commonplace to say now that the movement was not just about the initial problem: the destruction of a ‘couple of trees’ to make space for a shopping mall or a kitsch Ottoman style caserne. It was essentially about demanding basic human rights or the right to demand rights.

But what were the big issues? Which developments led to these riots? Why does Taksim Square matter so much to Turkish people? And will this revolt be a factor to cease Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's unfinished transformation?

Hamilton University Professor of Economics Erol Balkan and Sabanci University Professor of Sociology Ahmet Öncü, have been asking these questions for years. In the book they are working on with Hamilton University Professor of Economics Nesecan Balkan, entitled The Neoliberal Landscape and the Rise of Islamic Capital, they analyze the economic and social context that gave rise to this movement. According to Balkan and Öncü, the Gezi Park protests will have to develop into a new, stronger and more inclusive movement in the future. They were interviewed by Kvanç Özvardar, a Turkish journalist writing regularly for Ekonomist weekly and on politics as a freelance reporter. ... read full story / add a comment
