In Latin America, citizens view social protest as a means to influence public affairs and demand government response from a position of political disadvantage. The analysis reveals that people who belong to a discriminated social group are more willing to engage in protests. Likewise, voters who identified with the political opposition are more inclined to mobilise than the incumbent’s supporters. Moreover, the findings show that citizens who simultaneously identify with a socially-discriminated group and support the opposition parties are particularly predisposed to take to the streets to advance their collective demands.
