Chapter Summary

The 'March for Life' was the synthesis of a social condition, of collective practices, of life-prospects and of the ambitions of the cultural project of a class that, given its audacity, illuminated and tried to unite the disperse threads of a nation that roamed across this country's dramatic geography. The dramatic 1986 'March for Life'-which would begin a long period of marches and popular crucifixions over the following decades-marked, in its own way, the birth of a period where the impotencies of the popular classes were dramatised. The working-class condition has been characterised by the radicalism of presenting demands per se, and not so much by the radicalism of the demands actually placed on companies and the state. To a certain extent, Bolivian workers, unlike workers from other Latin-American countries, have been successful in advancing a culture of productive subordination based on occasional uprisings and the language of the masses.
