Chapter 5 is devoted to the impact of memories of past movements (with an emphasis on transition) on the movements that follow. After singling out main events, places, symbols, and persons that condense the memory of past movements in each country, it analyzes the mnemonic activities of social movements. The chapter looks at the ways in which collective memory is constructed and strategically used by the memory agents—in this case, the anti-austerity social movements of the European south. The memory building blocks invoked by the movements of each country are identified, and then the specific mechanisms, tactics, and broader strategies they employed are examined. Recent anti-austerity protests represent a main empirical focus for the analysis.
