Occupying Language: The Secret Rendezvous with History and the Present
Sprache des Titels:
?Language is not neutral,? write Azzellini and Sitrin, ?words transport and express concepts and ways of thinking. They can consolidate and perpetuate hierarchies, domination and control just as they can underline equality and strengthen consciousness.? Among the concepts explored in Occupying Langauge are Territory, Assembly, Rupture, Popular Power, Horizontalism, Autogestión (self-administration), and Protagonism. Examples of each term are drawn from different Latin American communities of struggle, from the spreading of Horizontalidad with the popular rebellion in Argentina, and the concept of Territory seen in Bolivia and Mexico, to the construction of Popular Power in the Consejos Comunales in Venezuela, and the vision of interconnected human diversity articulated in the call for ?one world in which many worlds fit? by the indigenous Zapatista communities in Chiapas, Mexico.
