Questions to jaquero, Nestor, and other comrades in Argentina:

Jaquero wrote,

"This is not, of course, the first time that promising revolutionary
developments have been seen in Latin America since 1959. But things
are different now. Reformism in the workers movement is much weaker
strategically than it has been before. This for a couple of reasons.
One is the collapse of the Stalinist regimes in the USSR. Another is
the post-Cold War mode of imperialist exploitation, which is
materially destroying the relatively privileged layers of the working
class and pettite bourgeoisie in the semicolonial countries. And a
third is that reformists of various stripes have become increasingly
identified with and pliant tools of neoliberal imperialist policies."

My questions are, 'Is it a fact that reformism is weaker in Argentina
now, compared to 1989?' 'Do you think that the revolutionary left is
stronger in Argentina now than it was in 1989?' and, 'can you
describe the left in Argentina and the role it is playing in the
curent mobilizations?'


All the best, Anthony
