Abstract
In the 21th century, new peasant movements have entered the global stage. What can we learn from this fundamental shift from local to global platforms? This article present a historical-comparative analysis about the scale and range of peasant actions in the globalizing world of the 20th and 21st century. We focus on former types of peasant movements and on the twenty-first century transnational peasant movement La Vía Campesina. How were and are peasant actions organized? What were and are their demands and expectations? Whom did and do they see as their enemies and adversaries? This comparative exercise questions peasant actions between local, transnational and global scales. How have the new peasant movements redefined local resistance within a global context?
