We will examine how Chilean students were able to organize a mass movement for public education that brought millions out into the streets and resulted in a seven month long student strike. In the second half of the workshop, we will consider the implications of the Chilean movement for student organizing in California. Does the evolution of language define our environment or respond to cultural need? This workshop will consist of a discussion about the place of gender, sexualities, race and space in forming alliances necessary to open up, sustain, and bring forward the movement as a site of political action, but also of struggle and transformation, together. Double underrepresented minority student enrollment now and over turn Prop 209!

I will briefly speak about participatory budgeting in Venezuela where I've done research, and then discuss ongoing efforts to bring it to Oakland, and possibly to the academic workers union and/or the University of California.
