Le rêve est fini. The European dream is over, while agonizes our hegemony and our autonomy sinks; but also the dream of revolution seems to have ended, at least temporarily, and Africa´s uprising that Frantz Fanon was waiting, is yet to come. Here we stand, looking at the horizon and gestating, between one shore of the Mediterranean and the other, new revolutionary waves and new dreams sustained on anothers epistemologies, builders of other cosmologies, mestizo, hybrid, without a hierarchy.
