Thousands of People Take Part in Landmark Chilean Social Forum
ANCHI (Chilean News Agency)
Chile is sending out a powerful signal: A broad-based anti-neoliberalsocial
movement is active that vindicates the need for balanced economics, institutional
democracy, and a just and united country.
On Nov. 19, 60,000 Chilean women and men marched through the streets of central
Santiago to show their opposition to U.S. President George W. Bush’s presence
in their country. Demonstrators protested the neoliberal policies promoted
by organizations such as the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC)
that brought together political and business leaders from 21 countries in Santiago
on the same days as the Chilean Social Forum.
The massive demonstrations also expressed the commitment and vision of a social
movement that aspires to peace, justice, and equality; and its dedication to
creating an alternative model for development, democratic institutions, and
integration and cooperation in Latin America and the world.
The Chilean Social Forum marked a highpoint of the post-dictatorship political
and social transition. And it showed that this is a time when Chilean society
is asking some very profound and searching questions about the neoliberalmodel.
