Posted on April 11th, 2024 in Uncategorized

Constructing Worlds Otherwise book cover

Uruguayan writer, popular educator, and journalist Raúl Zibechi will be touring in the United States in support of his new English language release, Constructing Worlds Otherwise.

“A survey of sustained autonomous people’s movements in Latin America that helps us rethink survival in the context of the extractivist State. It reimagines change even as it raises the quintessential question of how to move from episodic to radical social transformation.”
Johanna Fernández, author of The Young Lords: A Radical History.

Raúl Zibechi will be joined on tour by the book’s translator, George Ygarza Quispe. Follow the links below for more information on individual events.
