Politics recovered: "Keeping hope alive is a very important act of rebellion"

Pedro Kumamoto is an authentic, charismatic character. He is different - like Wikipolítica. And they both have a long way ahead. Español Português

Before we started recording this series of interviews, I was given some indications by the directors of the show: "Speak softly, we want intimacy"; "Let the interviewees think, your questions are difficult."

When Pedro Kumamoto got to our set at the IMPA Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, I knew that we would fulfill that mission.

There is something magical about Kuma, you can feel his charisma. As I inadvertently said during the interview, “Kuma has the merit of being authentic".

Pedro is different, and Wikipolítica is also a different sort of movement, made of pixels and paving stones. They both have a long way ahead and they want to go further.

Below, the full interview:

 

Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.
