ABSTRACT This article deals with the conceptual difference between the mobilizations of the 21st century and the social movements of the last century, which are more perennial and structurally organized than the present ones. It analyzes the context and characteristics of the mobilizations of June 2013, the governmental reaction in that year and in 2014, the electoral process and the reaction of far-right mobilizations in 2015 and 2016. It concludes that the provisional and unstable relationship with the institutional field have made all mobilizations of this short period unfinished and with no visible political consequences regarding current political practices.
