The activism associated with ‘subterranean politics’ – examined in detail in other chapters of this book – has shown many similarities to the anti-globalisation movement, including the emphasis on consensusbased decision making and direct action. Yet, there have also been significant differences as seen in the adoption of the square occupation tactic and in the attempt to defuse antagonism so as to appeal to large sectors of the population. Indignados and Occupy groups have configured subterranean politics as fundamentally a ‘civic politics’, a politics of citizens who do not feel represented by existing political institutions, including parties and trade unions, as expressed by recurrent slogans like no me representan (they don’t represent me) (see Gerbaudo 2012).
