Making Contact - May 14, 2004

Working Democracy:
Participatory Movements
in Latin America

As many Latin American countries are moving away from longstanding dictatorships, they still face the challenges of poverty. Structural adjustments imposed by the International Monetary Fund and increased privatization of resources characterize the region's economic policies. In response, peace and social justice groups challenge these policies by implementing the concepts of worker solidarity, sovereignty, and civic participation. On this edition of Making Contact, we take a look at workers movements in Argentina and Bolivia. We also investigate how residents of Montreal are using a citizen-based model of democracy from Porto Alegre, Brazil. - www.radioproject.org
