Resumo

By taking the streets in various demonstrations since 2013, the Brazilian people has answered the call of different internet based social movements. However, there was a denial, both on the part of the individuals, as well as on the part of the movements that there were leaderships behind the organization of the demonstrations, more specifically of the pro-impeachment demonstrations, creating what we call the myth of absence of leadership. This paper aims to deconstruct this myth and to point some of the leaderships behind the pro-impeachment demonstrations that occurred in 2016 in Brazil.
