Profile
:
I have nineteen years experience lecturing in Sociology, including at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and at the University of KwaZulu Natal. My main ideological approach is Marxism. I have been a political activist for the last thirty-five years, in both Argentina and South Africa. My main pursuits include: the struggle for the structural transformation of society and for an equal redistribution of wealth among the population; as well as political education and the possibility of institutional education for all.
