Abstract

The potential use of digital media for the benefit of social movements and traditionally marginalised groups seems to be endless. In this post, Paola Sartoretto discusses the use of technology in the context of the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement (MST), showing that, in being selective and reflective of the utilisation of new media, the MST incorporates the features of these media that work for their objectives. However, given that the most pressing work for insurgent groups is in the streets, the exact relevance of new media for these collectives is yet to be defined.
