Antes de la revolución habían en Cuba varias corrientes de izquierda y movimientos sociales activos en el país, incluyendo un importante movimiento anarquista. Después de la revolución todas las organizaciones y movimientos fueron consolidados bajo la teoría de que “dentro de la revolución todo, fuera de la revolución nada”. Recientemente ha habido un renacimiento del interés en modelos organizativos autónomos y horizontales. Much@s jóvenes de La Habana buscan alternativas a lo que ven como un estado burocrático centralizado. Aunque leales al socialismo, desean autonomía y libertad política y creativa.

Esta presentación abordará algunas de los retos y dificultades que l@s cuban@s enfrentan hoy día y cómo estos nuevos movimientos proponen “revolucionar la revolución” a través de la organización descentralizada, autogestión laboral y colectivización.


Prior the the revolution in Cuba there were various leftist currents and social movements active in the country, including a large and influential anarchist movement. After the revolution all organizations and movements were consolidated under the theory of "within the revolution everything, outside the revolution nothing". Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in autonomous, horizontal organizing models. Many youth in Havana are looking for alternatives to what they see as a bureaucratic centralized state. While still loyal to socialism and liberation, they desire autonomy, creative and political freedom. The presentation will touch on some of the challenges facing Cubans today and how these new movements propose to "revolutionize the revolution" though decentralized organizing, worker self management and collectivization.
