This paper seeks to identify the forms of organization of the popular social sectors during Allende's administration in Chile (1970-1973), many of which were independent from the organizational strategy established by the Unidad Popular government. Then it examines the relationship that these forms of organization established with the policy of the government and the Unidad Popular: To what extent were these organizational processes independent from the strategy drawn up by the government's policy? The paper discusses two processes of radicalization within the popular social sectors that occurred between 1970 and September 1972. The first process is evidenced by the symptoms of the organization that sought to go beyond the institutional forms proposed by Allende's administration. The second process, characterized by direct organization, aimed at developing alternative ways of solving the problems faced by the "Chilean road to socialism" and was critical of governmental actions.
