The main discussion is focussed to the success of the Brazilian movement, with reference to its leadership. This leadership is analysed throughout ten hypotheses which are constructed in order to interpret field data and demonstrate the importance of the relationship between leaders and their commiment with the movement and the specific struggle actions.
