Intercoll Presentation

Intercoll is an open space for the development and confrontation of social and citizen movements. It is run by individuals linked to those movements, and by anyone who is involved in social struggles and mobilizations. Intercoll aims to contribute to the gradual emergence of a new "international collective intellectual" from the reflection of movements and networks of research and public education related to them.
Intercoll aims to create an international and multicultural space. The website operates in six languages. The articles will all offer a brief summary of ten ligns in the 6 different languages. Seven steps will be implemented:

  • The wall of questionings that will arise or should be asked by the social movements.
  • Partner websites from several regions and on several themes.
  • Working groups on proposed and selected themes.
  • Mobilizations and citizen actions proposed by our partners.
  • An ongoing survey on the social movements’ strategy.
  • Texts published by other websites and selected by Intercoll for their interesting perspective.
  • Events, seminars, conferences, various events in which Intercoll takes part.

  • In defense of Venezuela

    , by DE SOUSA SANTOS Boaventura

    Venezuela has been undergoing one of the most difficult moments of her history. I have been following the Bolivarian Revolution from its beginning with critical attention and solidarity. Venezuela´s social conquests of the past two decades cannot be disputed. You just have to consult the 2016 UN (...)

  • The Left and Venezuela – "If the diagnosis of a reactionary coup is correct, the position of the left should not give rise to disagreements"

    , by Claudio Katz

    The media keep silent about the violence of the Venezuelan opposition and the prevailing repression by the right-wing governments of Latin America. The Right’s strategy of an institutional coup faces serious limits, but the Left must address this new threat, supporting anti-imperialist decisions and making a distinction between the capitalist boycott and the government’s ineffectiveness.

    Adhering to social-democratic standards, the post-progressive “critical left” objects to Chavismo, dismissing the danger of a coup, and mistakenly identifying authoritarianism as the main danger. The dogmatists overlook the main enemy and converge with the conservatives or slip toward passive neutrality.

    The Right only wants elections it is sure it will win. In these very adverse conditions, the Constituent Assembly re-opens opportunities and points to a re-encounter with radical intellectual thought.

  • The new world struggles to be born

    , by MASSIAH Gus

    The situation seems to be desperate. The offensive of the right wing and the far right movements occupies space and minds. It spreads out in the media and claims to express the shift of societies to the right. This is not the case and nothing has been decided yet. Societies resist and contradictions are at work; they are the ones that determine the future.

  • Counteracting the global hegemony of the financial system

    , by Alain Joxe

    From a strategic point of view, it is important to overcome the current hegemonic superiority of the financial system over the economic and military system. The urgency for the Left is to ward off the danger of decentralized and delocalizable third world war, which could take the form of war in three camps because of the emergence of the religious fact. It is also to make people aware of an internationalist solidarity based on international law and the defense of human rights.
