"A Native of Montevideo, Uruguay, Raul Zibechi became a militant of the Frente Estudiantil Revolucionario (FER) in the 70’s. In the 80’s he began his publishing career, writing articles for newspapers and magazines. Zibechi focused his writing on social movements in Latin America. He won the Premio José Martí de Periodismo, a prestigious prize given to journalists, for his writing on the Argentine social movement following the insurrection on the 19th and 20th of December 2001. Since beginning his writing career in the mid 80’s, he has collaborated on training and outreach work with movements including urban movements in Argentina, peasants movements in Paraguay and indigenous movements in Bolivia, Peru, Chile and Colombia. All his theoretical work, aimed at understanding and defending the organizational processes of these movements, is laid out in his book Dispersing Power (Dispersando el Poder) which has recently been published in English by AK Press." - PLAS Program on Latin American Studies at Johns Hopkins
