Thispaper submits some aspects of a research in progress, its methodological approach enrolls in an “Ethnographyof events” (according to the sense proposed by the anthropologist Borges). Our purpose is toanalyze this march in its diversity and complexity, avoiding any kind of essentialism or unifying claim.There are several aspects that show that multiplicity is a key to analyze the protest.
