Mouvements de masse et organisations de classe en Amérique Latine aujourd'hui. ALBA, sortie du FMI, BancoSur et "socialisme du XXIe siècle"




This paper analyses both the recent transformations of capitalism in Latin America and the popular resistances of mass movements and class organizations. The revolutionary progresses observed on this continent are also examined, in particular the failure of the FTAA, the opening of the ALBA, the negociations for the constitution of PetroSur and the proposals to go out of the IMF and to create a BancoSur. Finally, we discuss the needs to rebuild an active internationalism and the basis of a project of socialist transition in the difficult conditions of the twenty-first century.
