From the squares to post party era

  1. 1. #GlobalRev: from the squares to the post party era Bernardo Gutiérrez /// Global Revolution Research Network // @bernardosampa (Twitter)
  2. 2. The spread of network movement is global
  3. 3. The relationship between technology and social change The challenge is to understand 'how' the mindset, attitudes and collective skills allied to new technological tools can create new ways to change the world.
  4. 4. How connected are the brains and networks? How to understand the collective emotional moods?
  5. 5. 9 network patterns of #GlobalRevolution
  6. 6. 1.Tecnopolitics: Multi-layer actions ● Tactical and strategic use of digital tools and online collective identities for collective organization, communication and action. ● The ability of connected crowds, of brains and bodies to create networks and self-modular collective action. Pattern of political self- organization in the network society. ● It is not CLICKACTIVISM or CIBERACTIVISM. Technopolitics uses the network and the ciberterritory to have effect outside and inside. It is not activism without strategy or organization or exclusively online.
  7. 7. Mind map of tecnopolítics, by Javier Toret
  8. 8. The combination of social networks and occupation of urban space anticipates the media coverage and mass communication agenda
  9. 9. 'Vândalos' (chapullers) in Brazilian media Manifestantes o vándalos, Link of the study
  10. 10. 3. Emotional connection
  11. 11. From indignation to empowerment Police violence, derogatory media coverage and stablishment turn on protesters into Vandals (Brazil), Chapullers (Turkey) or Perroflautas (Spain). #YoSoy132 (México) is another example. Outrage is the new fuel of network revolts. Indignation turns into empowerment and positive emotions such as hope.
  12. 12. Aggregative emotions = empowerment
  13. 13. Spanish 15M emotional analysis
  14. 14. 4. Collectives identities Collective identities are common to all networked revolts of recent years. Identities that accept remixes and adaptations, such as 15M or Occupy camps. In Brazil many collective identities from Passe Livre emerged. The same with #Diren in Turkey.
  15. 15. In the revolts in Egypt, the death of blogger Khaled Said became a collective identity in Facebook fanpages as #Somos KhlaedSaid. In Brazil, the disappearance of the worker Amarildo Dias de Souza generated (almost) a collective identity. Left Picture: intervention in avenida Delfim Moreira, in Leblon (Rio de Janeiro) and residents of Rocinha favela with placard 'Where is Amarildo?'. #SomosKhaledSaid, #SomosAmarildo
  16. 16. 5. Aggregation Easy adhesion slogans ("It is not for twenty cents, it is for rights" (Brazil), "We are not goods in the hands of politicians and Bankers" (Spain), "We are the 99% (Occupy) become a common divisor. The aggregation of the mobilization of the network system dismantles all sorts of antagonism. The identity (football fans creating the United Istanbul event or walking together in São Paulo), the regional (Rio and Sao Paulo forgetting grudges), ethnical (kurdish vs Turkish) or protesters vs police alliance are examples.
  17. 17. Political parties network (competitive) Lack of interacctions between different communities (different parties). Most of central actors are the recognized leaders. Global Revolt Networks (collaboratives): Interactions between different communities (ideological, geographical…)  Central actors are, in general, collective identities. Change of paradigm
  18. 18. Relationship among PT (Brazilian labour party), PSDB (right wing Brazilian party), Anonymous and Passe Livre. A study made by LABIC proved the endogamy of political parties in Brazil. Picture: left militants trying to partcipate in June the 20th protest in São Paulo. Political parties endogamy
  19. 19. Transnational memes “Não me representam” (They don represent us) shout in Municipal Chamber of Rio de Janeiro // Twitter Account of O Globo, hacked with “Democracia Real Já” (Real Democracy) // #TomaLaCalle (take the street, a 15M Spanish meme, used in Peru two years later // @AnonymousRio profile, with indigenous style // Occupy, we are the 99%
  20. 20. 6. Self-organized growth, swarms and connected multitudes
  21. 21. Topology of 15M networks
  22. 22. Graphs of #Yosoy132 networks (Mexico)
  23. 23. 7. Distributed temporal Leadership // Beta Movement ● There is a network or a relay race between a constellation of collective identities without permanent leadership or personal univocal identities “499 accounts of Spanish Revolution”, (Manuela Lucas graph)
  24. 24. The study #ProtestoRj of Media Lab at UFRJ (Rio de Janeiro Federal University) about events in Rio de Janeiro evidenced that mobilization happened thanks to the "poor nodes" as @catupiry, for their ability to dialogue. Influential groups in the city - except Anonymous - were irrelevant in the first call. The importance of poor nodes
  25. 25. From Propongo (15M-Indignados to Plaza Podemos), the hybrid participatory method of the occupied squares is getting sofisticated. 8. From grassroots participation to power
  26. 26. Different cities conformed citizen fronts for taking power. (Madrid) was the first step. La apuesta municipalista (copyleft book) was the virus. GUANYEM Barcelona created the imaginary and GANEMOS (we win) was the national shout/shape. After that, the names changed but the 'confluence' format was the trend. Political party PODEMOS supported the 'confluence' fronts. 9. From #15M to Spanish confluences
  27. 27. Most of the campaigns were made almost without budget (crowd funding, donations). Especially important the citizen campaign made for supporting AhoraMadrid (with Manuela Carmena as the candidate), that happened eve out of the AhoraMadrid structure. Citizen overflow: p2p & DIWO campaigns
  28. 28. Graph or #BarcelonaEnComu conversations. Author: Fábio Malini PostParty network topography
  29. 29. In Madrid, there were two huge emotional and independent explosions: #MadrirconManuela (creative hub supporting Manuela Carmena) and #SomosManuela. Without them, #AhoraMadrid would barely had won the elections. Emotional explosions
  30. 30. The post party citizen confluences will almost for sure rule important cities as Madrid (Ahora Madrid), Barcelona (Barcelona en Comú), Zaragoza (Zaragoza en común), Cádiz (Ganar Cádiz en Común), A Coruña (Mare Atlántica), Santiago de Compostela (Compostela Aberta), Valencia (Compromís + Valencia em Común), Terrassa (Terrasa em Comú) or Oviedo (Somos Oviedo), among dozens of smaller ones. Citizen confluences governing cities
