ABSTRACT
The author shares his reflections on the need for a Global Spring, a worldwide uprising against capitalism. According to the author, people are now realizing that the ideology of capitalism is broken and an irreparable system.

He cites the strategies of demonstrators in Turkey and Brazil.
