MAY 1997

The recent Latin American Conference of Marxist Magazines took place on May

interchange and joint work begun in May 1995 in Santa Maria, Brazil, where
an Interchange Protocol was begun among several marxist magazines from the
region. The second meeting took place in October 1995 in Rosario,
Argentina, and was attended by more than twenty publications from
Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. A third conference was held n May 1996,

Crisis," organized by Alfaguara from Uruguay. At that time a call was
issued for the Florianopolis meeting, together with a workshop titled "80

Anti-Capitalist Struggle.

The meeting was organized by the Brazilian groups Praxis and Critica
Marxista, and the Centro de Filosofia y Ciencias Humanas de la Universidad
Federal de Santa Catarina, Brazil, its Sociology, Politics, and History
departments, and its Center for the Study of Changes in the World Of Work
