BE: “We need collective action, insubmission and disobedience to power” – Portugal

The start of the BE Convention was dedicated to thinking about ways to combat populism and the extreme right. From Brazil and France came warnings about the dangers of neoliberalism and fascism and ideas of resistance.

The starting session of the Left Bloc Convention seemed to start lukewarm. The room at the Pavilhão do Casal Vistoso, in Lisbon, was half empty, even though the program included Guilherme Boulos, from PSOL, a star of the Brazilian left who animated the audience with an idea of ​​​​resistance in the face of the risks of populism and the extreme right . “If they globalize hate, it’s our role to globalize hope,” he said, drawing an enthusiastic ovation from the blocking delegates.
