Estado Plurinacional: entre el nuevo proyecto y la factualidad neocolonial

Pablo Mamani Ramirez

Abstract


This article presents and discusses the deep contradictions and paradoxes that indigenous social movements face in their struggles to reverse the republican colonial order in Bolivia and to share the exercise of political power with the two hundred year old elite groups.  Here the complexity is toask oneself about what type of society is being built in Bolivia. Are we moving toward a pluralist society of an Indian-popular type, toward a liberal multicultural mestizo-style society, or toward a monocultural society?

Este trabajo expone y discute las profundas contradicciones y paradojas por las que atraviesan los movimientos sociales indios-originarios-campesinos en sus luchas por revertir el orden republicano colonial en Bolivia y compartir, con los grupos bicentenarios, el ejercicio del poder político. Aquí lo complejo es preguntarse por el tipo de sociedad que se está construyendo en Bolivia. ¿Nos encaminamos hacia una sociedad plural de tipo indio-popular, hacia una sociedad de estilo multicultural liberal mestizo, o hacia una sociedad monocultural?
