In this paper, we propose to synthesize the course of the
post-2001 territorial movements, specifically identifying the movement of unemployed workers that belongs to the suburban third ring of the Argentinean capital city or “Big Buenos Aires”. We make a balance of what happened during the days of December the 19th and 20th of
2001, the fundamental milestone of the period of resistance to neoliberalism in its most acute implementation during the 90s, to understand
the state’s intervention produced from 2003 in Nestor Kirchner´s government.
We want to highlight the return to a “popular national”
matrix in the territorial intervention, occupying the social space “opened” by unemployed workers’ autonomous organizations (autonomy in respect to the State and the traditional forms of political exercise, including
diverse experiences or traditions that act together with segments of the “popular national” matrix turned to the anti-liberal struggle), who lost their unified strength, fragmenting and relegating spaces to the
traditional politics. Finally, we mention territorial implementation strategies of the period and their implications for the professional
intervention of social work.
