La primavera anterior

(English Intro to follow)

Con tanta fascinación mediática por la “primavera árabe” y los sucesos que han sacudido el continente europeo, parecería que los movimientos y levantamientos populares que transformaron el balance geopolítico en América Latina durante la pasada década fuesen relatos de la antigüedad. En el siguiente trabajo, escrito (en inglés) hace apenas 5 años, intento aboradar las complejas relaciones estructurales entre esos movimientos, la resistencia “altermundialista” a la globalización neoliberal y lo que ello implica para las condiciones de posibilidad para el surgimiento de nuevas subjetividades revolucionarias. A pesar del retraso con respecto a los debates teóricos contemporáneos y las opiniones del propio autor, creo que aun contiene planteamientos relevantes para analizar la coyuntura actual, y como mínimo, recordar que el mundo existió antes del 2008.

So much media fascination with the “Arab Spring” and the events that have recently shook the european continent often makes the popular movements and uprisings that transformed the geopolitical balance of power in Latin America during the past decade seem like Ancient History. In the following piece, written scarcely 5 yeqars ago, I try to approach the complex relationships between those movements, “altermondialiste” resistances to neoliberal globalization, and what these imply for the conditions of possibility for the emergence of new revolutionary subjectivities. Despite the lag with respect to contemporary theoretical debates, as well as the author’s own opinions, I think it still makes relevant points for analyzing the current situation, and, at least, remembering that the world existed before 2008.
