Ayllu Democracy

Ayllu Democracy

Indigenous Law and Collective Governance as Territorial Protection

(p.79) Chapter Three Ayllu Democracy
Mobilizing Bolivia's Displaced

Nicole Fabricant

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter analyzes the agricultural community of Pueblos Unidos, another geographical locale of Movimiento sin Tierra (MST) organizing. Pueblos Unidos is one of the areas unprotected by the state and under constant threat from agribusiness and extralegal violence. There is great insecurity and fear as politicized Indians cross into sites of consumption, but there is greater insecurity and fear in remote rural areas. The chapter examines insecurity across multiple scales: at the level of the community (including threats from outside the community and from within), but also with regard to organizational failures (corrupt and hierarchical leaders). It examines the Andean ideal of the ayllu as the framework for a democratic structure of governance within MST settlements.

Keywords:   Pueblos Unidos, Movimiento sin Tierra, MST, agribusiness, extralegal violence, consumption, ayllu, governance
