      November 28, 2010 -- It should come as no surprise that Latin America, a
      region converted into a laboratory for ongoing experiments in social
      change, has increasingly become the topic of discussion and debate among
      the broader left.

      Latin America has not only dealt blows to imperialism but also raised
      the banner of socialism on a global scale. It is of strategic importance
      for those fighting for a better world, especially at a time when
      capitalism is in systemic crisis.

      Latin America’s landscape of powerful social movements, left governments
      of various shades, revolutionary insurrections, and growing expressions
      of indigenous resistance and worker control, provides a perfect scenario
      for leftists to learn about, and debate, revolutionary strategy and tactics.

      This should not simply be an academic debate. It should look at how to
      best build solidarity with these movements for change and gain insight
      for struggles at home.

      Of late, burning dispute has opened up, mostly among those writing from
      an anti-capitalist orientation: a debate over the complex relationship,
      or “dance” as Ben Dangl calls it, between social movements and states in
      Latin America.
