RODRIGUEZ HERNANDEZ, Gabriela. De la participación a la protesta política. Convergencia [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.45, pp.77-93. ISSN 2448-5799.

The present work intends to approach the study of public demonstration from the existent theoretical apparatuses with the aim to explain political participation and social movements. The concept of political demonstration is proposed in order to explain the collective behaviors that the inhabitants from the Valley of Mexico adopt against the different elements in the public sphere. When we interpret the results from an exercise where three hundred and eighty semantic networks were applied, hence to learn the meaning of the political demonstration. Being indeed found that political demonstration is related to the behaviors which everyday the inhabitants of the Valley of Mexico carry out in the public space.

Keywords : political participation; social mobilizations; political demonstration; liberty; semantic networks.
