But the community structures operate in an autonomist logic, that is, instead Last Database of focusing exclusively on claiming the State, they are dedicated directly to solving local problems. They manage irrigation, manage construction work Last Database and infrastructure maintenance, carry out productive projects, resolve neighborhood conflicts, exercise communal justice in civil and criminal cases. The claims or requests to the Last Database State generally seek its contribution, its help or that it facilitate resources for its own initiatives. Or at least not in the way. They do not focus their struggle on asking the State to doinstead.
rather, they seek to maintain their Last Database autonomy with greater or lesser success in order to be a local government or to participate very actively in it. The precise effect of such an organizational configuration is this: at a time and in a country where the word of politicians and politics is so discredited, indigenous organizations speak for their actions, their bases recognize Last Database only those who have gone through that organizational hustle and bustle of "talking by doing". It's far from perfect or harmonious, of course, but it's a trend Last Database clearly discernible from its troubled organizational history. And it is a crucial element of their permanence and their continued legitimacy with the grassroots.
Conaie's political strategy since its inception has been a Last Database continuous and conflictive combination of forms of struggle: social mobilization and electoral participation are, of course, the best known. Whatever the final balance of redoubled ambitions, bureaucratization Last Database and exacerbated caudillismo in the midst of the continuous tension between elected officials and organizational leaders, there is a fundamental effect. Institutional participation (but also development projects) encourages hundreds or even thousands of indigenous intellectuals Last Database and professionals to remain linked to the social movement in their daily work activities.
