We are Millions: Neo-Liberalism and New Forms of Political Action in Argentina
Marcela Lopez Levy
Over the last 25 years a brutal transference of resourses from the poor to the rich has taken place in Argentina. The wealthy in Argentina have used the tools of neo-liberalism to make fast profits for themselves and international interests without a thought for the country's future. On the 19th and 20th of December 2001, Argentinians took to the streets in their millions and said Enough! to the plunder. Their demand was 'que se vayan todos' - out with the lot of them - the corrupt politicians, the interfering IMF, the rapacious national and foreign companies and banks. Two years on, it is clear that the protest was a turning point in the political life of the country. It was a wake-up call to citizens - they need to be more involved in the running of the country, or soon there will be no country left to run. 'We Are Millions' traces the history of the state policies that have led to mass unemployment and poverty and describes the innovative and varied social response to the economic meltdown and political crisis.
