This presentation is called “Building Here and Now the World that we Want.” This is what we are developing now through a network of cooperatives in west central Venezeula, including the states of Trujillo, Lara, Portuguesa, Barinas and Yaracuy. CECOSESOLA, the Lara State Central Cooperative, began as a funeral service. Today a weekly fee of 3 bolivares (approximately US$0.35) covers a cooperative member and up to eight direct family members for funeral services. Education has been the fundamental base to develop our activities since our beginning. Everyday we practice this through constant reflection. Historically, we also organized a local transport bus cooperative. Though we no longer run that cooperative, it makes us very proud, because through it we learned much and gained experience from the many mistakes we made. CECOSESOLA was born out of a genuine need. Eventually we developed production and supply sectors. This includes an agricultural production group, as well as small production cooperatives that produce cleaning products, cereals and other products for the community...

Nosotros los indígenas somos libre desde nuestro nacimiento y socialista por nuestra cultura autóctona. El Delta parece desde el aire una gran raíz, vuelve múltiple el cauce Del Orinoco, en ese mundo, la selva reina, con su humedad y su verdor, allí la presencia aborigen de los Warao los convierte en los herederos del agua y de la naturaleza, en esa tierra que en los mapas aparece como Territorio Federal Delta Amacuro. La tranquilidad ancestral del warao se trastoco hace 52 años cuando los malabares de la ingeniería y la visión de un progreso que no toma en cuenta al hombre arrasaron con hectáreas enteras de selva cerraron el cauce de un caño, caño Manamos. Para tragarse en sus aguas especies vegetales y animales y con ellos 2600 waraos que murieron aislados abandonados inundados acosados por una suerte de maldición que no les cabía en su nombre y en su cosmogonía...

I will focus on producer cooperatives. As we know there are also consumer cooperatives. Producer cooperatives can offer both goods and services, and these are the most important for me. When we think about a cooperative, it is not the legal ownership of the means of production that is most important I think, but it is useful to be at the service of the cooperative members. We should bear in mind that a cooperative is nothing more than a group of people gathered to reach a common goal. Most important, I think, is that they achieve this goal in a democratic way, managing and administering the enterprise in democratically amongst the members. The most complex item to this subject of building socialism by cooperatives, are overall due to the interpretation that socialism has given to historical experiences that still permeates the vision of a lot of people. It is a fact that a cooperative is an autonomous organization that a government cannot control directly, because that would be against its principle of autonomy. Then what does this non-government administration or management mean? Is it the same as private management, that is for the benefit of a particular group of people with narrow interests who are the cooperative owners? Or could it also have a social character? ...

It is a real pleasure to share the experience we have lived in Brazil The population of Brazil is 190 million inhabitants. Fortaleza, where I come from, is the fifth largest city in the country with 2.2 million people. We work with the community in the Pirambu slum that has 200,800 people. This is to locate you in the context where I work. The essence of our work are expressed in these words of Hermann Hesse: “I cannot give you something that I don’t already have inside of me. I cannot open a world of images that goes beyond the world of images inside my soul. I can give you the chance, the boost, the key. I will help you to make it visible; that is it…” Read more on http://priven.nhlf.org/community-therapy-supportive-social-networks-to-promote-life-by-dr-adalberto-barreto/ || First Global PROUT Conference, 7 to July 9, 2011, Caracas, Venezuela.
