Relación entre paramilitarismo y desestabilización violenta

Venezuela: la lucha contra lo social

En los medios de comunicación internacionales hemos podido leer durante meses de “protestas” en Venezuela y de “muertos en las protestas”, pero las acciones que desde comienzos de marzo llevan a cabo pequeños grupos armados ágiles no tienen nada en común con lo que se entiende regularmente por “protesta”.

Venezuela: Ahol a jómódúak erőszakot gerjesztenek, miközben a szegények egy új társadalmat hoznak létre

A művész és dokumentumfilmes, Dario Azzellini szerint a tüntetések Venezuelában aljas támadást jelentenek az ország Hugo Chávez elnöksége alatti társadalmi fejlődése ellen, a jómódú régiók anti-chavista erői részéről.

Venezuela: dove i ricchi fomentano la violenza e i poveri costruiscono la nuova società

L’artista e documentarista Dario Azzellini sostiene che le proteste in Venezuela rappresentano un feroce attacco al progresso sociale del paese ottenuto durante il governo di Hugo Chávez, incoraggiato da politici anti-chavisti che vivono nelle zone dei benestanti.

Prima che Hugo Chávez diventasse presidente del Venezuela nel 1999, i barrios di Caracas, costruiti alla buona sulle colline che circondano la capitale, non comparivano nemmeno sulla mappa della città.

Venezuela: Bohatí podněcují násilí, chudí budují společnost

Než se v roce 1999 stal prezidentem Venezuely Hugo Chávez, caracaské barrios, postavené na kopcích obklopujících metropoli, se ani neobjevovaly na mapě města. Oficiálně neexistovaly, město ani stát neudržovaly svou infrastrukturu. Chudí obyvatelé těchto čtvrtí získávali vodu a elektřinu, když se na kabely a trubky napojovali sami. Neměli přístup k různým službám jako je odvoz odpadu, zdravotní péče a vzdělání.

Artist and documentary filmmaker Dario Azzellini argues the protests in Venezuela represent a vicious attack on the country's social progress under Hugo Chávez, spurred on by anti-Chavista politicians in affluent regions.

Venezuela: Where the Wealthy Stir Violence While the Poor Build a New Society

Before Hugo Chávez became president of Venezuela in 1999, the barrios of Caracas, built provisionally on the hills surrounding the capital, did not even appear on the city map. Officially they did not exist, so neither the city nor the state maintained their infrastructure. The poor inhabitants of these neighborhoods obtained water and electricity by tapping pipes and cables themselves. They lacked access to services such as garbage collection, health care and education altogether.

Chávez e il Potere Costituente

“No, il potere costituente non può essere ostacolato, non può essere ostacolato dal potere costituito [...] Alcuni autori parlano della terribile natura del potere costituente. Penso che sia terribile il potere costituente, terribile, complesso, rivoluzionario ma ne abbiamo bisogno. Non ci si dovrebbe sottomettere al potere costituente [...] il potere costituente è e deve essere- compatrioti- una potenza permanente, una potenza di elaborazione, un’iniezione rivoluzionaria, per ripristinare, molto occasionalmente, il nostro processo bolivariano”.

Gewaltsame Destabilisierung und Paramilitarismus hängen in Venezuela eng zusammen

Der Krieg gegen das Soziale

In deutschen und internationalen Medien ist immer noch von "Protesten" in Venezuela und "Toten bei Protesten" zu lesen – doch mit dem, was gemeinhin als "Protest" verstanden wird, haben die Aktionen kleiner, bewaffneter, agiler Gruppen seit spätestens Anfang März nichts mehr gemein. Nachdem die gewalttätige Mobilisierung der Opposition, die Anfang Februar begann und von einer beispiellosen internationalen Medienkampagne begleitet wurde, ihr Ziel des Sturzes der Regierung in Venezuela nicht erreichen konnte, sind die Aktionen zunehmend in Terrorismus übergegangen.

The grassroots of Venezuela

The mainstream media view has it that left-leaning populists are keeping democracy in a stranglehold. Seen from the grassroots in Venezuela, that view is very different. We interview Dario Azzellini, an assistant professor, activist who spends a lot of time in Venezuela, and a filmmaker.

Self-Organization and Self-Education in Venezuela

We have organized a Congress here. Why? What reason can there be for artists, the freest, most independent people in society; people who live like "the lily of the field", to come together, organize themselves, and undertake theoretical discussions?> -Asger Jorn (1956)

The Communal System as Venezuela’s Transition to Socialism

Communism in the 21st Century

"The purpose of this chapter is to explore practices in the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela linked to the idea of a transition to socialism through the construction of communal production and consumption cycles controlled by workers and communities. The envisioned transition combines local self-administrat on and workers’ control of the means of production. The present work concentrates mainly on the experiences of local self-administration.
