Uno de los primeros ejemplos de apropiación y uso de las tecnologías digitales para la acción colectiva fue el surgimiento espontáneo de una red transnacional de solidaridad con el Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional de México a mediados de los noventa. Unos años después, el movimiento altermundista tejió un poder de convocatoria global y marcó un cambio de época en la comunicación alternativa con los Indymedia y la emergencia generalizada del periodismo ciudadano. A partir de 2011 aparece una nueva fase de acción comunicativa: las multitudes conectadas que se manifiestan de forma intensiva en las redes sociales digitales y que toman las calles de distintas ciudades del mundo. Con todo este proceso ha emergido una cibercultura crítica global que ha transformado el activismo y que tiene que ver con la idea de red y con la creación de espacios de encuentro tanto in situ como on line, conectando lo local con los flujos globales de la indignación. Explorar los distintos momentos de esta relación entre comunicación y movilización en los últimos 20 años es el propósito de este artículo One of the first examples of appropriation and use of digital technologies for collective action was the spontaneous emergence of a transnational solidarity network with the Zapatista Army of National Liberation in Mexico in the mid -nineties. A few years later, the global justice movement wove a global convening power and marked a new era in alternative communication with Indymedia and the emergence of citizen journalism. In 2011 a new phase of communicative action appears with connected crowds that use intensively social Networks and take the streets of different cities of the World. Through all this process a global critical cyberculture has emerged and transformed social movements activism. The idea of networking is creating meeting places both in situ and on line , connecting the local to the global flows of indignation. In this paper, I explore the different stages of the relationship between communication and mobilization in the last 20 years
