Rain Man y Principito

Carlos Ortiz de Zárate Denis | El autismo de Gregori Perelman y la abstracción de los peligros de la desertización y la inmensidad del Sahara que amenazan al piloto de Saint-Exupéry son alternativas a la visión dominante del mundo. En ambos casos se afirman otros planteamientos posibles, aunque éstos representen, respectivamente, una aceptación de los efectos del orden establecido y de una desconstrución del último. El autor de esta carta trata de identificar los rasgos del proceso que implica este proceso en la experiencia de las acciones concretas para promover el desarrollo local limpio solidario e identitario que propone a los representantes de los poderes territoriales.

The Silence of the Netroots

Chris Anderson | Before progressive activists become too enraptured by the triumph of the netroots, there are some serious questions that need to be answered-- or at least discussed. Is a “passion to win” all that really matters in politics? How do the social dynamics of the internet affect the makeup of the liberal blogosphere? And what is the place of big ideas in today's liberal, not to mention progressive or radical, movements? more...  12 Comments

“Walking, We Ask Questions”: The Other Campaign in Spanish Harlem

RJ Maccani | NarcoNews By RJ Maccani
The Other Journalism with the Other Campaign on the Other Side

August 31, 2006

Inspired by the Black Panther Party and Chicago’s Young Lords, the New York Young Lords Party launched a surprising first campaign in the summer of 1969. Called “The Garbage Offensive,” it was designed to force the New York City Sanitation Department to make more frequent pick-ups in East Harlem (often referred to as Spanish Harlem or simply “El Barrio”). The Garbage Offensive won the trust and respect of their neighbors and garnered the Young Lords Party local and national visibility. Although inspired by the Black Panther’s community-based programs, the New York Young Lords didn’t expect to be picking up garbage when they discussed forming an organization to improve living conditions in their primarily Puerto Rican neighborhood. Before launching their first campaign, however, the Young Lords went to their neighbors to find out what they most wanted to see changed. The Garbage Offensive was the fruit of this dialogue, the will of the people. Proudly inclusive of their Latino and Black neighbors, the New York Young Lords’ center of gravity was Nuyorican (Puerto Rican New Yorkers), and the independence of their homeland, Puerto Rico, a central concern.
