Cyber Rally: An experience of democratic use of the internet

Abstract

In support to this strike, we developed a pioneering project using the Internet as a democratic media. The aim of this project, named “Cyber-Rally for the Brazilian Universities”, was to increase the pressure on the governmental authorities by allowing the society to express its opinion to them. The Rally home page [1] was used by people to easily send protestation messages to about 800 Brazilian authorities with a mouse click.
