LECTURE 1
WHO ARE THE DISPOSSESSED?
Topics:
1)Course Intro
2)Dispossession Defined
3)Strategies for Social Change
2) who are the dispossessed?
- refers to the sense of injustice in having something important taken away: land, goods,
natural resources, opportunities or rights.
- Edward Said (1994): The Politics of Dispossession -> the struggle for Palestinian self-
determination
- Dispossessed = lower classes, the subaltern, popular sectors.
- A civil society coup: the toppling of democratically elected governments by social
movements. Its a direct action tactic. Social revolution is not so much on the agenda
anymore.
3) Strategies for Social Change
Pathways to Change
1)Electoral Politics: the parliamentary road to social and political reform (working
within the system). During the 60s and 70s this option was frowned upon; not
radical enough. Today it has become the weapon of choice for many movements.
Examples:
Ecuadors Indigenous Pachakukk Party (MVPP-NP)
Bolivias Indigenous and Worker MAS Party (Movement Toward Socialism)
Brazils Social Movement Workers Party
