Abstract

Citizen participation and collective action through the use of media are not new phenomena, but they are more topical than ever in the global, hyperconnected public sphere. In this post, Leonardo Custódio discusses his research on the rich media activity produced by favela-based activists. He shows how, through community media, media collectives and networks of mutual support and joint action, favela dwellers have been able to take control of communication channels and platforms to raise their own voices and demands.
