L'associazione Utopia Rossa lavora e lotta per l'unità dei movimenti rivoluzionari di tutto il mondo in una nuova internazionale: la Quinta. Al suo interno convivono felicemente - con un progetto internazionalista e princìpi di etica politica - persone di provenienza marxista e libertaria, anarcocomunista, situazionista, femminista, trotskista, guevarista, leninista, credente e atea, oltre a liberi pensatori. Non succedeva dai tempi della Prima internazionale.

CHÁVEZ, by Roberto Massari



Chávez is dead.  His contribution to the Venezuelan cause and that of Latin American unity has been so personal that it does not seem plausible to offer any hypothesis as to the developments of these processes. Also the historical judgment on this great Bolivarian leader is doomed to remain suspended: contradictions within his government have been many, as many have been his merits and mistakes. For that reason, we think it justified to present as an obituary, the closing words of our book on Chávez from the autumn of 2005… Yes, 2005, when the Bolivarian process reached its apex and also started its decline. Let us remember that most of the interrogations displayed in the last page of that book have remained unanswered, and that is precisely the most sincere homage we can pay to this outstanding fighter. That is why we re-publish that page:


«Here we are, this is what Chávez is, and much more. A political leader gifted with great courage and human bearing. But also a brave and foresighted soldier. A father-husband in love with his own family, but also able to make jokes about his own presumable fascination on the female world: a world he knew how to get involved in the revolutionary process.

A populist? In his own manner, yes: in the social program, in his political ascriptions (Perón, Velasco, etc.), in his way of behaving among the people, in the skillful use of television.
A revolutionary nationalist, an anti-imperialist fighter? Yes, as long as we add “Bolivarian”.
A Marxist? No. A communist? No. A future bureaucrat? We hope not.
A revolutionary humanist? Perhaps, but hardly so and only at the beginning of that ideal process of maturation in political and existential terms which I have described in my book about Guevara. And power, unfortunately, does not make this sort of process any easier.
One more myth for the Left? Probably.
A strong personalization of power? Unfortunately, yes.
An honest man still in search of something? Yes, and this could be the most important element, which makes it worthwhile to go on studying the political deeds of this last in a long list of South American Quixotes, to go on contributing to the effort of his people and to continue to value his experience.»
