Abstract [en]

During the last years several new kinds of protest movements have appeared around the world. The occupy movement that started out as local occupation in New York and which was adopted in different places all over the world can be considered as the latest example of forms of subterranean politics (Kaldor et al. 2012). This paper considers critical media practices by Occupy groups in the European periphery namely Sweden, Latvia and Estonia. As the Occupy movement born in New York was initially largely invisible in mainstream media, the world learned about it through social media. What first was a pragmatic approach to spread the word became a critique of the impetus of mainstream media that are ignoring the 99% of society. Occupy is hence not only considered as an expression of a change in forms of social and political activism, but also in how communicative power is claimed and achieved.
