ACTIVIST film-makers including Indymedia Argentina and the makers of This is What Democracy Looks Like and Genova Libera! have teamed up to make a new video, Argentina in Revolt. It uses footage of protests, and interviews of working and unemployed activists to show the turmoil that exploded in Argentina in December last year. Over a million people took to the streets when the economy collapsed under $150 billion of debt to the International Monetary Fund.
Since then people have faced enormous state repression, but resistance is alive. New forms of organisation such as district assemblies have sprung up while protests, strikes, factory occupations and roadblocks have continued. This film gives a sense of the anger people feel and the determination they have to fight back. It is exciting and inspirational viewing.
Argentina in Revolt is available free with one year's subscription to International Socialism. Phone 020 7531 9810.
