The globalization has caused an important and never-ever-seen re-territorialization process in Latin America, with significant effects on nature, as well as on social and cultural movements, and also on democratic struggles. These effects have not been properly noticed due to the colonizer speech of global economic uniformity prevented the comprehension of new diversity experiences and regional identity dislocation. Nevertheless, the impact on the local power structure caused by this new re-territorialization process is inevitable and redefines the character of collective mobilizations. In this context, reactions against colonization accurately revealed these processes and the new perspectives for participative democracy.
