Protest and Identity

the Symbolic Construction of Conflict

In this chapter we shall focus on the effect that the enlargement of the protest networks has on the definition of the identity of protesters, their motivation to protest and their definition of what is at stake in the protest. As a No Tav activist observes, "the wealth of the movement is precisely in this, the capacity, not only ours but of people more generally, of finding a new way to stay together, despite being different" (IVS 1). As we shall see, the growth of the mobilisation is reflected in the tensions (typical of protests against large-scale infrastructural projects) between local identity and global reach, defence of the environment and common goods, demands for administrative decentralisation and participation from below. In the following pages we shall look at the effects of mobilisation on the emergence and evolution of frames relating to the definition of the identity of the actor (section 2), the diagnosis and prognosis of the problem (section 3), and finally the motivation for action (section 4).
