Location: Red Emma’s, 800 St. Paul Street Horizontalism: Voices of Popular Power in Argentina Author Marina Sitrin joins us for a talk and book release. Will you?
The Argentine economic crisis of December, 2001 gave rise to broad and inspiring social movements across the country. Unemployed workers took over idle factories that once employed them, neighborhood assemblies arose as a primary mechanism for political participation, and the country erupted in rebellion and political crisis. The movements disavowed state power, are still quite alive and inspire people around the world. Marina Sitrin just published the first oral history of those movements.
