This forum will discuss the popular uprising in Colombia in the wider context of South American politics.
Colombians (especially the young) are not alone in demanding change. Peru has a new leftist President (under attack from the far right), and Chile has ousted its political elite, with decisive victories for leftist and independent candidates. Is this part of a South American “Spring”, or just an historical pendulum swing? Speakers
Federico Fuentes, Latin America solidarity activist, Green Left journalist, and co-author "Latin America's Turbulent Transitions"
Jorge Navas, former Secretary of the HSU (SA). Human rights activist for Colombia. Member ACTU International Affairs Standing C’tee.
