Here is the watchword echoed by the Court on the afternoon of the United Hearts Sunday November 24. The court, which sits on the hill of Timbau, one of slums of the tide in the North Zone of Rio de Janeiro, hosted the meeting this day The Economy We Want, Building the Field Economies Collective and City. ---- The meeting joined collectives and social movements to exchange experiences and strengthen the links between popular initiatives based on self-management, respect and mutual support.

was represented by four groups, the collective grocery store, the
Community nursery and production group of cleaners,
all acting on the basis of slum Chico Mendes (Pavuna), such as
Groups Collective Investment (GIC). All these groups work on the basis of
collectively to solve immediate problems of the people and build their
autonomy, goal through the work of the MCP which is based on ten columns
the movement. Between education, health, leisure and others, the collective economy is a
these columns. Also focuses on forms of collective production of the Movement
Organization Base (MOB) which presented its plans to produce breads and cakes
self-managed based on CCS. The Small Farmers Movement was
this not only with a great direct farm coffee, but also with a
presentation of the vision and practice of the movement fighting for the emancipation of
campesinato.Atuando together, from production to marketing,
creates collective motion and without exploring ways to produce food and get them
to consumers.

Also present was the Cooperglícero São Paulo, battling not only by
need for economic livelihood of their workers, but also contributes
with the community in a broad sense, with their work and Recycling

minor concern. Have Augusto, producer of honey and aged cachaça,

While Roça!, Along with residents of Timbau, offered many of their

private interests. Its components make an assessment that these two types
association, NGOs and OSCIPs, now so common, work in areas of slums
embedded in power relations that often hinder the struggle to build
of popular power. Contrary to the power relations, the members from the Country!
understand that without our economic support without own resources, do not be -
Rowing political autonomy in the slums. No political autonomy will not have strength
to fight and build a community resistance movement organized by
base and starring its residents. This goes well in the sense of calling
the meeting, which identifies the economy " means (not an end in itself), through
which social movements in the country and the city may organize and strengthen
their struggles. "

was published an article in the newspaper O Globo about beer
craft. He said that to start a production, you need a
minimum investment of R $ 200,000.00! So members

training and transfer of knowledge and material to form a
first core collective production of craft beer in a slum,
with support base Favela Movement If not Cala.

Another form of collective production was presented by the research group

Territoriality) : The production of knowledge about our forms of struggle, organizing the
and make collective savings. In this sense, the very meeting program
pointed to the wide range of fields in which we need to act and think
together to build collective savings, and with a low horizon
search for autonomy : in three working groups, the 60 participants

marketing movement " and " the collective farm production. " It's a long
way, that we must not therefore cease to tread already, day-to - day, in
