The current paradigmatic crisis needs to be dealt with at the regional level. In this respect, Latin American movements have already mobilised and placed different models of development and integration at the centre of their struggle.

This interview belongs to a series of interviews on perspectives of activists from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe on the issue of regional integration. All interviews were filmed by TNI at the International Conference of Governments and Social Movements - “Regional Integration: an opportunity to face the crises” - between 21 and 22 July 2009 in Asunción, Paraguay
