English abstract

Kargbo (2004) points out that education is an indispensable means to unblock and protect other human rights by providing the necessary scaffolds to ensure good health, freedom, security, economic well-being and participation in social and political activity. The lack of information policies on the part of the State, added to the inefficient role of public libraries in Chile (hours and locations far from the realities of the most vulnerable territories), constitute an essential part of the foundations from which popular symbolic spaces emerge, places where the integrating knowledge agreements are articulated in pursuit of information, with it, knowledge and empowerment from each territory. The close link that exists between the strengthening of Popular Libraries and Human Rights is developed with the construction of these information structures that promote social justice through non-formal education in the spaces created and self-managed by the inhabitants themselves, who They request decent working conditions, access to housing, the right to knowledge, diversity, cultural heritage, the protection and promotion of native peoples, historical and cultural memory, identity, respect for the elderly and disabled, in conclusion to the fundamental rights of all people. In these resignifications, interactions, mediations and agreements of democratic-symbolic spaces emerge, which in the everyday represent the essential counterpoint to the relationships that are maintained with the hegemonic and information discourse that the neoliberal system establishes. In this sense, the popular library is established as a cultural activist organization that promotes in the community the right to the representation of local culture in a collective and dynamic way. These new political subjects participate in social movements demanding that they respect their fundamental rights and those of their community, thus permeating the status quo and the discursive establishment, yet they are made invisible by the system.
