Inspired by the militant movements of a rebellious continent which since 2000 gained power in several parliaments and governments, by that ending an era of Neoliberalism, Interbrigadas e.V. organizes since 2006 political brigades to Latin America. Within ten years of work we organized more than a dozen brigades mainly to Venezuela but also to Bolivia, Columbia, Ecuador and Germany.
Our understanding of internationalism is grounded in the conviction that those regions in which the political conditions refuse a logic of exploitation and capital accumulation, need theoretic symbolic and practical solidarity – regardless where. We focus our work on Latin America and try to confront the fad-like and short-lived solidarity especially in an era with modern communication technology. We also try to reflect the problems that occur by international cooperation and try to learn from positive and also negative experience.
