Prof. Angela Alonso draws on her latest book, “Treze: a política de ruas de Lula a Dilma” (Companhia das Letras, 2023) to address two critical aspects within social movement literature: the dynamics between the state and social movements, and the contentious issues that tend to trigger street demonstrations. Both subjects are examined through a case study on the 2013 Brazilian protests, the largest demonstrations in Brazil since the 1980s re-democratization and standing out as a significant event in contemporary democracies.
