Thank you for your comments Greg.

I received other comments with links to J.Petras positions about the
NGO's in L.A. I am agreed with J.Petras analysis, which is right in
denouncing the Capitalist agenda.

today?  How we create local community based economic project oriented
to empower the people, question the system and most important

We use popular education, alternative culture and art expressions,

level) alternatives to empower marginalize and poor
communities. Co-ops or worker's co-op for some is not the way, which
one is?

hopefully some "companeros" express their opinion.

develop a practice of economic self-dependence today, for tomorrow's
