This chapter examines the degrees and forms of participation among the February 15, 2003 demonstrators. Strong identification with and deep embeddedness in movement networks are the best predictors of degree of participation. The most committed demonstrators were leftist, with sympathies for the new global movement and low confidence in the police, and with high interest in politics but mistrust of institutions. Regarding the forms of participation, most of those who demonstrated had used a large repertoire of political participation, sometimes combining them with disruptive forms of action but almost never with violent repertoires.

Keywords:   February 15 demonstrators, movement networks, degree of participation, forms of participation
