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.

  • Yemen. Failed attempts to restore peace

    , by Helen Lacker, Orient XXI

    Two months after the signature of the Riyadh Agreement between Yemen’s internationally recognised government (IRG) and the separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC), what is the situation on the ground? Coming 13 months after that of the UN-Sponsored Stockholm Agreement, it is appropriate to assess and compare their achievements, particularly as both were publicised as major steps forward in bringing the Yemeni war to a conclusion and seem to be facing similar fates.

  • Something is happening in Colombia

    , by CETRI, Forrest Hylton

    Colombia is going through a cycle of protests, led mainly by urban youth. Although it is too early to pronounce on the changes and continuities, with an almost non-existent left and an ultra-right against the ropes, this wave could end up strengthening new figures of the progressive center.

  • Algeria: Hirak, a long-lasting movement

    , by Plateforme altermondialiste, Saïd Djaafer

    A few weeks before 22 February, when the regime has plugged the "hole" in the presidency, writings are already decreeing the "failure" of the Hirak, which is accused of having been too "radical" or not radical enough, of having refused to "negotiate", of not having "structured" itself, of not having "representatives". Others point to the lack of "ideological purity" of a movement that includes a fairly wide range of the country’s ideological and political currents.

    Those in a hurry to decree the failure of Hirak are often the ones looking for the "invisible" hands pulling the strings. But by dint of being shaped by a perverse system, one ends up not seeing what is visible: a society that has set itself in motion to reappropriate a state that has been privatized for too long to the benefit of small groups and to the detriment of the majority. This movement is invaluable and it will not stop.

  • A new stage in the Middle East crisis

    , by Pierre Beaudet, Plateforme altermondialiste

    The latest US aggression in Iraq and the threats to bomb Iran are a sign of a bad start in this new year. The assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, as well as the execution of fighters of the Iraqi Kata’ib Hezbollah militia, opens the door to a larger-scale conflagration. The Iraqi government is demanding the departure of the 5,000 American soldiers still present in the country. Teheran is taking the nuclear road again while bombing American military bases in Iraq. Everyone is holding their breath.
