In Spain, close to 400 new parties have emerged since 15-M. Many have been created on the basis of interactions facilitated through technology. Some started out as a Facebook initiative, a Reddit platform or alliances generated by activists involved in the occupation of the towns and squares in 2011 – and combinations of the above.
The new political parties indicate this connective logic<https://theconversation.com/connective-action-the-publics-answer-to-democratic-dysfunction-33089>. They do not articulate any particular ideology that would be familiar to an observer of 20th-century politics. The activists behind them see themselves as deploying political tools to generate the momentum necessary to reboot the system in favour of a connective logic rather than to capture power in the manner of the traditional parties.
Join Francisco Jurado Gilabert for an in-depth discussion of the development of digital politics in Spain from 15 May 2011.
