Description
Summary:Anarchism as an ideology and social philosophy was treated marginally in academia for quite some time, which prevented us from measuring its real impact in the Latin American context, beyond the classic prejudices with this ideology. In this sense with the notion of social movement from the perspective of Latin American critical social sciences, a discussion that is not yet settled as to the definition of the term, we conduct an analysis of anarchism in the context of the social outburst of October 2019 in Chile, and through these analytical tools, we characterize anarchist practices from their own Latin American expression. For this reason, the previous political context of Latin America, prior to the social outbreak marked by the advance of neoliberalism, has seemed fundamental to us in understanding the phenomenon. Thus, the vindication of the horizontal assembly, the exercise of direct democracy, the barricade as a meeting place, among other forms of self-organization, are relevant elements in the new processes of social conflict in the continent. As this is not an isolated phenomenon and is replicated in several Latin American countries, the issue merits further research, based on several methodological tools, one of which is the discussion of social movements from our own categorical repertoires.
