Organizing social change

1) How does organizing subalterns under the dominant structures of economic political organizations upend or reinforce the dominant structure? In other words, is speaking the "language" of the dominant structure to voice the subaltern voice actually just a co-opting of the subaltern voice?

2) What effect does identifying and classifying issues do to the overall ability of the subaltern to speak his/her voice? In other words, does it help in the short run but hurt in the long run for the subaltern to be able to speak, especially if their needs change?
