  • Practising solidarity: challenges for community development and social
           movements in the 21st century

  • Solidarity, organizing and tactics of resistance in the 21st century:
           social movements and community development praxis in dialogue
    • Authors: McCrea N; Meade RR, Shaw M.
      Pages: 385 - 404
      Abstract: AbstractThis article attempts to identify and explore the convergent features of social movements and community development, arguing that they already share a distinctive, if uneasy, alliance around what might be called the politics of democracy. Exploring connections, as well as points of difference, this article suggests that a critical dialogue between the two might, in the longer term, contribute to a positive realignment between social movements and community development groups. In our view, social movement praxis has much to offer community development in reviving and reasserting its more radical potential, by offering untapped opportunities for building community, forging collective identity and imagining political alternatives. Specifically, the article explores why and how protest tactics matter: their political significance and the dilemmas and possibilities they present both for movement participants and community development practitioners. The article, while recognizing the often complex and constraining contexts within which it is deployed, also identifies particular features of community development that may contribute to the building of more grounded and participatory movements. In highlighting the overlapping and progressive commitment of social movements and community development organisations, we recognize the acute challenges involved in building support and forging solidarity among disenfranchised peoples. In the final section, we highlight and explore potential sources of and approaches to solidarity, assessing their relative merits for a more politically engaged community development practice.

  • Agrarian politics and land struggles in Northern Uganda
    • Authors: Martiniello G.
      Pages: 405 - 420
      Abstract: AbstractSince 2004, we have observed a significant resurgence of public protests and social mobilizations, both urban and rural, across the African continent. Though the multiplicity of agrarian struggles have gone largely unnoticed by academics and policy makers, rural social struggles have significantly affected the trajectories of rural social change. This article historicizes rural social struggles and explores the diverse range of discourses and forms of resistance that have animated the northern Ugandan countryside, with particular reference to the Amuru district. Initiated as a response to the wave of neoliberal agricultural restructuring through structural adjustment plans, rural social movements, and other community-based political initiatives from below, proliferated in the context of rampant large-scale land enclosures and state authoritarianism. The article suggests that such agrarian struggles be regarded as a process of contestation over the norms, values and practices, which govern the control, access and the use of natural resources such as land, water and food. It situates these struggles within the parameters of everyday peasant politics, which are driven by impulses ranging from the protection of livelihoods and local environments, to claims of autonomy and land sovereignty, and which are grounded in an ontology of the moral economy. Finally, the article engages with the question of the political relevance of localized forms of rural resistance, and how their tactics, strategies and discourses can consolidate or undermine community solidarity, attract or deter other social constituents, and stimulate or diminish equitable and sustainable rural social change.

  • Creating political subjects: collective knowledge and action to enact
           housing rights in Spain
    • Authors: García-Lamarca M.
      Pages: 421 - 435
      Abstract: AbstractBuilding on eleven months of engaged research with the Platform for Mortgage-Affected People (PAH) in the Barcelona metropolitan region and involvement in the movement post-2014 as an activist, this paper considers the processes through which people facing foreclosure and eviction become political subjects. Community development, in this context, is seen as a transformative, bottom-up process, unfolding as PAH members collectively push institutional housing-related boundaries by both producing and enacting learned political practices ‘from below’. A Rancierian framing of political subjectivation is used and extended to understand how the PAH ruptures indebted subjectivities and assistentialist approaches to mortgage problems, and the challenges such processes face. Upon a brief contextualization of Spain's 1997–2007 housing boom, plus the PAH's antecedents and emergence in the post-2008 crisis period, I argue that collective advising assemblies and actions are co-constitutive spaces where processes of political subjectivation are generated and enacted. Collective advising assemblies are spaces where people unable to pay their mortgage begin to disidentify with their position in the dominant economic and political configuration and begin to shed their guilt, shame and fear. This process flows through and feeds into actions like blocking evictions, occupying empty bank-owned housing or banks, spaces to enact one's disidentification with the existing order and materialize new ways of acting and being. Concluding thoughts identify what the experience of the PAH means for understanding political subjectivation and community development in the 21st century.

  • What is ‘autonomy,’ and how can we make it possible' Reflecting on
           concrete experiences from Latin America
    • Authors: de Souza M.
      Pages: 436 - 453
      Abstract: Abstract‘Autonomy’ is the key term underpinning one of the most seminal and vigorous radical political philosophies of all time, Cornelius Castoriadis's ‘project of autonomy.’ This is a bold attempt to overcome both liberalism and Marxism or capitalism and ‘bureaucratic socialism.’ However, Castoriadis's direct influence has in recent decades been more visible in academia than within the framework of emancipatory movements. In the meantime, autonomy has become one of the key concepts in the parlance of several Latin American social movements. This article aims to examine and explore the concrete meanings of ‘autonomy’ in the praxis of Latin American movements. It does not propose to ‘measure’ Latin American praxis and achievements using Castoriadis's writings as an absolute parameter. Instead this paper considers how ‘autonomy’ as a living political concept is ‘adapted’ but also reinvented under specific historical–geographical circumstances. Nevertheless, it also avoids populist understandings of emancipatory politics, as if popular practices could never be wrong. Accordingly, it advocates a true dialogue between different experiences and types of knowledge in the name of mutual learning and political enrichment.

  • Resourcing community organizing: examples from England and Quebec
    • Authors: Fisher R; Shragge E.
      Pages: 454 - 469
      Abstract: AbstractThis article focuses on the broad and challenging question of how to resource transformative grassroots organizations. These organizations not only carry the grievances of women, immigrants and workers, but build collective action, support the emergence of leadership, and connect to larger social movements. We explore how the resourcing and democratic legitimacy of such grassroots movements transgresses presumed boundaries between popular politics and manipulated participation and whether diversifying funding sources helps make genuine community organizing more or less likely. We ask how these organizations pay staff, support education, and continue to survive while also challenging power. In addition, how do they contend with forms of state support that privilege very narrow and depoliticized agendas' We conclude that there are radical grassroots organizations that have, to a limited degree, successfully negotiated these tensions. Our examples from England and Quebec, along with our wider analysis, provide a snapshot of the possibilities of diversifying funding for community organizing by adding public funding to the mix. But our critical perspective also highlights the values, infrastructure, and scale needed to advance community organizing and related social movements beyond these examples.

  • Radicalizing community development: the changing face of the Queer
           Movement in Hyderabad City
    • Authors: Kumar P.
      Pages: 470 - 487
      Abstract: AbstractMetropolitan cities in India have become a site of queer activism and queer visibility after the Delhi High Court decriminalized homosexuality in 2009. The Supreme Court through its 2013 verdict overruled the 2009 Delhi High Court judgement thereby recriminalising homosexuality. However, this conservative stance of the Supreme Court could not diminish the spirit of visibility and mobilizational politics. Queer aspirations seem to have intensified and multiplied in the age of social media. Hyderabad as one of the corporatized cities of India has experienced heightening of queer politics in recent years. The article delineates the growing radicalization of the queer movement in the city of Hyderabad since 2014/2015 due to the entry of a vocal and enlightened transleadership. The latter has attempted to remap and rescript Hyderabad's queer movement through decorporatization and greater inclusion of grass root issues in in its political mobilizations. Through its tactics and organizational approaches, it has also challenged the hegemonic constructions of queer politics as articulated by Non Governmental Organizations and elites within the gay community.

  • The violence of (in)action: communities, climate and business-as-usual
    • Authors: Diprose G; Bond S, Thomas AC, et al.
      Pages: 488 - 505
      Abstract: AbstractClimate change is creating challenges and opportunities for community development. The challenges arise from declining biophysical conditions and the socio-political and economic barriers that delay, delegitimize or co-opt genuine community responses. Opportunities are arising from global climate change activism networks that provide new resources and discourses for activists and community organizers. These challenges and opportunities are unevenly shaped by the possibility for genuine democratic contestation in different contexts. In this article we draw on recent climate justice mobilizations in Aotearoa New Zealand. These mobilizations called for divestment from fossil fuel activities by blocking access to major banks around the country that directly support the industry. While most actions in the campaign were peaceful and effective in closing down business-as-usual for the day at specific bank branches, one in particular provoked police and implicit state-sanctioned violence against the activists, pitting bank customers against climate activists. We use this case study to illustrate the complexity of contemporary climate activism and tactics within communities, and draw on the work of Judith Butler to show how violence and stigma are used to discipline certain bodies who contest more dominant development trajectories and investment.

  • Colonial dispossession, developmental discourses, and humanitarian
           solidarity in ‘Area C’: the case of the Palestinian Yanun Village
    • Authors: Meari L.
      Pages: 506 - 523
      Abstract: AbstractDrawing on ethnographic fieldwork in Yanun village, which was categorized as part of ‘Area C’ by the Oslo accords, this article analyses the collusion of the mainstream hegemonic developmental discourse with the colonial project in colonized Palestine. It also analyses the politics of and limitations of contemporary forms of international solidarity with Palestinian communities in ‘Area C’. The article situates the devastating life conditions of Yanun community within the Zionist settler colonial project in Palestine with its ongoing structural and violent forms of dispossession, land appropriation, expulsion and displacement of Palestinians, particularly in ‘Area C’, which constitutes the current frontier for Zionist settler colonial expansionism. By examining Yanun community's survival tactics, the article illustrates how the hegemonic developmental discourse on ‘Area C’ constitutes the masses of Palestinians as subjects of humanitarian aid. The article also shows how the humanitarian approach of solidarity with Yanun's community constitutes the condition of Palestinian victimhood, cancels its anticolonial agency, and patronizes its forms of anticolonial resistance by employing the tactics of eye witnessing Palestinians’ life under occupation and employing the language of non-violence.

  • ‘Madness’ and activism in Ireland and Scotland, a dialogue
    • Authors: Sapouna L; O'Donnell A.
      Pages: 524 - 534
      Abstract: AbstractAnne O'Donnell and Lydia Sapouna, based in Scotland and Ireland, respectively, are activists and writers who have made long-standing contributions to the debate about mental health and recovery. In this dialogue they exchange analyses of the achievements and lessons to be learned from mental health activism that has resisted dominant narratives of mental illness and that has created innovative, collaborative and critical spaces for the exchange of ideas, experiences and enthusiasms. The dialogue seeks to evoke the distinctive styles of activism adopted in each context, the successes engendered and the kinds of dilemmas and tactical choices navigated. Ann and Lydia have initiated a process of reflection and exchange, and out of this they have constructed a dialogical piece that highlights key organizational issues for mental health activists and for community based social movements more generally.
