Abstract [en]

This video is devoted to show the way in which popular urban planning works with the program Barrio Nuevo Barrio Tricolor in the popular districs of Barrio Nuevo, Bucaral, Bello Campo and La Cruz, in the municipality of Chacao, State of Miranda, Republica Bolivariana de Venezuela.In the video the participants explain the way in which they perceive the ambitions of the housing program from a participatory and communitarian perspective. There are examples of the complementary division of labour among men and women. In the international debate it has been stressed the displacement of politics. In this particular case this displacement implies the way in which new and popular forms of decision making emerges, for example the “Salas de Batalla Socialista”. As in other instances of participation the role of women is crucial to advance the coordination of the work. Along the communicative skills women show astute ways of exploring potentials and using democratic channels to improve the quality of life of the members of the community.Aparts of the Video are discussed in the paper "El feminismo barrial en la construcción de la ciudad y la ciudadanía: Sus movilizaciones, diagnósticos y formas de participación en la planificación en Medellín, Cochabamba y Caracas", Trienal de investigación FAU 2011 - del 6 al 10 de junio de 2011, available from
