Politics, Movement and Electoral

Interesting political developments. In Chile, according to this report at The Guardian,  Camila Vallejo Dowling, was one among several leaders of student mobilizations in 2011 elected to Congress. And The Los Angeles Times reports that here, in the U.S., Kshama Sawant - OWS activist and freakn' self-proclaimed socialist - was elected to the City Council in Seattle.  You can find another report on Sawant here at The Guardian. These may seem blips on the radar. Perhaps they are. But each raises the issue of what possibilities a movement might generate.
