LOCAL POWER? A FIRST HAND ACCOUNT OF VENEZUELA'S COMMUNAL COUNCIL MOVEMENT
A CONVERSATION WITH KENDRA FEHRER

Brown University Ph.D. student Kendra Fehrer has just returned from her 3rd
stay in Venezuela where she spent time with 8 communal councils. Recently
established, these councils offer grassroots communities of up to 400
families an opportunity to directly organize their own economic and social
development. Some 18,000 communal councils have spread throughout Venezuela
in a unique experiment combining direct democracy, representation and
economic development. Kendra's graduate work in Argentina, combined with her
own activism provides a keen vantage point for understanding the unfolding
Venezuelan experiment with 21st Century Socialism.
