Abstract

Protests are mainly organized by citizens’ associations demanding public intervention in order to stimulate development and to guarantee the population’s well-being in peripheral areas. As a result of a similar historicity of protest that characterizes both locations, the demands towards the state are formulated in an ambiguous way that blends a myth of rebellion against the central power with a discourse of resistance based on nationalism. The coalition leading the protests reinvents and puts on display a locally specific identity and uses a marginalization narrative that formulates demands in emotional and moral terms, depoliticizing the protest. The state response combines political repression and economic advantages.
