¡Adelante! The New Rural Activism in the Americas

In many parts of Latin America, rural social movements have taken center stage in their nations' politics. Even as Latin America is becoming increasingly urban, in many countries the total number of people living in rural areas has actually increased in the last decade. The challenge remains of how to build movements that address their needs and that can successfully influence the policies of governments increasingly enthralled to the interests of the transnational elite networks that govern our world in favor of broad structural change. This issue of NACLA Report hopes to provide readers with the tools to answer these vital questions by examining the ins and outs of campesino and indigenous organizing in several Latin American countries.
