Abstract:

Widespread western media criticism of the 'pink tide' in Latin America stems from a desire to minimise the threat they pose to the Washington consensus that there is no alternative to neoliberalism. In fact there is much that the left in other countries can learn from the successful alternatives they are developing. The article focuses on three areas, democracy, the media and 'space', showing how new approaches are being developed. The article discusses developments in Venezuela and Bolivia, and the importance of the new sense of regional identity.
