PUENTE-IZURIETA, Francisco. The youth protest in October 2019: context, motives and repertoires. Universitas [online]. 2021, n.34, pp.215-234. ISSN 1390-8634.

In this work, the dynamics of the protest carried out by young people from October 3 to 5, 2019 in Quito-Ecuador is explored in an exploratory way. To meet this objective, the contextual factors that allow understanding the influence of the structure of political opportunities, the perceptions and emotions that drove the contentious activation, and relational aspects that allow understanding the configuration and articulation of the repertoires used by the protesters during the first days of this cycle of protest. In collecting the information, an ethnographic approach has been used that triangulates field observation, semi-structured interviews and digital documents, from which the mechanisms involved in the protests developed during the days prior to the arrival of the indigenous movement to the capital city and to the mobilization called by representatives of workers’, indigenous and student organizations. Thus, the contributions of the theory of collective action and the sociology of emotions are briefly exposed and discussed to explore a way to combine them in an understanding of contentious youth activation.

Palabras clave : Context; perceptions; emotions; spaces of belonging; repertoires of conflict.
