LEE, Henrique de Oliveira  and  FRANCISCO, Camila Rodrigues. Discursive struggles and empty signifiers at the demonstrations of June 2013. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp. 101-119. ISSN 2238-152X.

The goal of this paper is to propose an inquiry about the discursive struggle performed at the streets and at the virtual space among the many political identities present in the demonstrations of June 2013 in Brazil´s biggest cities. It is proposed an analysis of certain production and reception of utterances of the struggle established among the many groups that took part in the demonstration through the framework of Laclau´s and Mouffe´s concepts of “antagonism” and “empty signifiers”. The latter allowed us to verify the emergency of antagonistic meanings in the discursive production found in the streets and virtual spaces as a way to articulate antagonism and political identities.

Keywords : Laclau; Empty signifiers; Antagonism.
