The occasion of globalization mobilizes internal forces and local leaders into using external forces, allying with alien (national and global) actors to achieve local goals; and letting themselves being used by alien interests and made part of global goals. In the Amazons region, particularly, there has been an emergence of local actors and space‐time structures that deserve attention when devising viable structures in the global world. In this paper, our purpose is to watch some of the actors that interact in the region and learn how, underneath globalization, history depends much on the leaders of local projects. Looks at two modalities: one in Brazil and one in Venezuela.
