Forjando um instrumento diagonal para a esquerda global


  • Christopher Chase Dunn University of California Riverside



Navio. Nacionalismo Progressivo. Esquerda Global. Capitalismo Mundial. Holístico.


Este artigo assume o desafio de Samir Amin de repensar a questão da organização política global, propondo a construção de uma organização política diagonal para a esquerda global que ligaria redes locais, nacionais e globais, bem como comunidades prefigurativas para coordenar a disputa pelo poder no sistema-mundo durante as próximas décadas do século XXI. O processo do Fórum Social Mundial (FSM) precisa ser reinventado para promover o surgimento de um instrumento capaz de confrontar e disputar com a estrutura de poder global do capitalismo mundial e ajudar as lutas locais e nacionais. Propomos uma abordagem holística para organizar um navio para a esquerda global baseado em lutas por justiça climática, direitos humanos, antirracismo, direitos queer, feminismo, redes de partilha, alianças de paz, retomada das cidades, nacionalismo progressivo, confrontando e derrotando o neofascismo e novas formas de populismo conservador.
