This article discusses the emergence of social movements in Latin America in the 1990s. These movements have intensified their struggles in spite of the very neoliberal policies that were supposed to end all struggles. Some factors which contributed to the growth of the movements are indicated. To further explain the elements of social movements, this article recalls the history of Caribbean resistance in the early 20th century, which has been characterized by many important moments. The purposes of the resistance are recounted.
