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.

  • Mobilization In support of young Chilean activists who are victims of judicial repression

    Mobilization | , by Angelo Montoni-Rios

    Judicial repression has become a new weapon of States in the fight against social protest.

    The last case that prompted our reaction involves the sentencing of 6 young people for the death in a fire of a 71-year-old worker during a street demonstration on 21 May 2016. These heavy sentences for a highly publicized case raise many doubts and make it possible to affirm, what is becoming a habit, the existence of a police and judicial structure to find guilty parties.

  • South America: The end of a cycle?

    , by Autres Brésils, Glauber Sezerino, Ritimo

    Out of dictatorships and authoritarian regimes that have marked them deeply between the 1960s and the 1980s, a large number of South American countries have seen the emergence of democratization processes based on policies often described as right-wing.

    This economic-political model ran out of steam at the end of the 1990s. The sub-continent sees the arrival in power of new political elites, mostly from social movements born in the previous period.

    However, from 2010, in a context of retraction of the global economy, these projects seem threatened by their internal limits. In this context, this "left cycle" seems to be coming to an end - or at least in the face of a blockade - with the advancement of the right wings within these left-wing governments.

    In this dossier, we will try to analyze the specific dynamics of this ongoing process in the subcontinent.
