Working on the life stories of old-age activists, this paper shows that their activism has to be linked with two types of explanations. This activism can be understand as the result of the exclusion from others organisations that these activists have experienced due to their age. This activism can be understand also as the product of their will to be involved with people from the same generation. Therefore old-age organizations are less a place where elderly interests are defended than a place where elderly people can continue some kind of activism. Finally, this paper demonstrates that the comprehension of where elderly people get involved as activist has to be linked with the structure of inequality (i.e. the age segregation) that exists in social movements as in the whole society.
