TRYING TO DECIPHER AN ENIGMA: WHY CERTAIN STUDENT APATHY BEFORE THE RISE OF NEO-NAZISM IN BRAZIL?

  • Virginia Figueiredo UFMG

Abstract

Why did many students so enthusiastically join the 2013 protests, occupying the streets across the country, and now, faced with the very dangerous rise of neo-Nazism in Brazil, remain apathetic, indifferent and even, dare I say, passive? Perhaps we can compare the 2013 Journeys with May 68 in France. I suggested the possibility that young people were looking for new ways of existence, trying to “apply” this Deleuzian concept (with admirable posterity) to the movement whose most notable feature, and indeed the most criticized, was its multiple agenda, its uncontrollable diversity!
