New media and collective action in Spain: the events of March 2004 and Igor Sádaba Rodríguez (University Carlos III, Madrid) This paper presents the static and dynamic dimensions characterizing the media opportunity structure for collective action in Spain. These characteristics help explaining the emergence of a cycle of mobilization between 2003 and 2004, concluded in the events that took place between 11 and 14 March 2004. Through an examination of different data, including participation to protests and type of mobilisations, the use of new technologies and the role of official and alternative media, the text aims at studying the extent to which the emergence of recent waves of social mobilisation is linked to and shaped by the new communication technologies. Specifically, the focus is on the spontaneous demonstrations of 2004 against the Spanish centre-right government (13 March) after the terrorist bombings in Madrid (11 March) and a few days before the general elections (14 March). This analysis allows developing some reflections about the role of communication in processes of collective mobilization. Keywords: Spain; Social Movements; New media; Political and Media Opportunity Structure.
