Amid the range of organizations and forces described in a variety of social movement literature, organizations of people living and working in rural areas receive short shrift. This is not a new phenomenon, but it is one that has increasingly little justification.

The problem of social movement reproduction and solidarity is then discussed drawing on the ideas of Alain Badiou.
