Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Susan Spronk – Social movements have been successful in beating back the tide of water privatization that swept the world in the 1990s, forcing the retreat of water multinational companies in the poorest countries of the global South. With global temperatures rising, unions in the energy sector can learn from these struggles – many of which were worker-led – to give rise to a strong counter-movement for energy democracy. While the political economy of the energy and water sectors are different, we can build on water justice victories and draw lessons on: how to frame our demands for local control over the commons; the importance of building broad coalitions with unlikely allies; and how to practice internal democracy in our movements.
