委內瑞拉系列簡介

今年三月,委內瑞拉前總統查維斯去世, 香港各大媒體鮮有地提起他的名字。人人都說他反美,反美以外,就只有陌生而矛盾的片言。有人說他是一代獨裁者,但他一次又一次勝出選舉;有人說他打壓言論自由,但他又好像促生了很多民間電台。有人說他行福利主義會拖垮經濟,但他任內十多年人均生產總值升了一倍。

在他任內,貧窮人口中的識字率急升,亦似乎有了 許多社區共識自治的實驗。提起「人民公社」,很多人只認識中共在1950及60年代那些所謂極左路線、空有意識形態口號的「大鑊飯」。可是, 在21世紀的委內瑞拉民眾的十多年努力下,  這些「組織化、集體化、基層化」的社會共同體實驗,卻顯得更有效而實際, 更像真的「人民公社」,為經濟和社區民主找到了實踐的路線。那麼到底,這些人民自主的社會實驗的進行情況如何?一般委內瑞拉老百姓,又如何看待這些政策?

建設中的自治區

如果普選不足以實現民主,那麼,普選以外,民主的實踐還有甚麼呢?過去十多年,委內瑞拉國內出現了數以萬計, 擁有規劃、行政、財政權力的自治社區,試試落實共識民主的生活和生產方式。

some stories of venezuela
 

hugo chavez, venezuela’s previous president passed away this march. mainstream media seldom mention either him, or venezuela. when he was mentioned, he was described as an “anti-US” icon. other than that, there are only strange and self-conflicting phrases. some says that he was a dictator, but he won elections over and over again; some says he oppressed freedom of press, but under his reign, there was a remarkable flowering of independent community media; some says his welfare state would break the economy, but under his reign, gdp per capita doubled…

literacy rate remarkably increased, and there were numerous social experiments of community autonomy. after more than a decade, these slow experiments obviously attained much more practical social development than those ideological “communes” boasted by the PRC Communist Party in the 1950s and 1960s. well, actually, how are the experiments now? how do ordinary venezuelan pueblo see these policies?

comuna en construcción
if general election is  not enough for true democracy, so what’s the missing part? in the past decade, numerous communities with political and economical autonomy emerged in venezuela, trying to practise consensus and democratic lives and mode of production.
