Entre el fuego y la sartén: movimientos sociales y burocratización (22/08/2010)

MLea Másás allá del debate superficial alrededor de las elecciones que tuvieron lugar el pasado domingo 30 en Brasil, es preciso volver a poner de relieve las actuales (y viejas) dificultades para clarificar las posiciones y los objetivos de las luchas y movimientos sociales que pongan realmente en cuestión y apunten a superar el orden del capital, lo que nos obliga a repensar la cuestión de las formas organizativas que requerimos para transformar el mundo. El siguiente texto, desarrollado como una reflexión abierta e inacabada desde las condiciones específicas del Brasil, y desde el esfuerzo de difundir, apoyar y pensar las luchas del colectivo Passapalavra, apunta a que los movimientos sociales deben ser defendidos, ante todo, del avance de la burocratización. El gran desafío es la generalización de las relaciones solidarias y colectivas establecidas directamente en la base de los movimientos sociales. Por Passa Palavra
