BARREIRA, Irlys Alencar Firmo. Politics, memory and public space: the via for the feelings. Rev. bras. Ci. Soc. [online]. 2001, vol.16, n.46, pp.97-117. ISSN 0102-6909.

The article analyses different mobilization and symbolic strategies against violence and in favor of justice led by a family victim of the murder of the father, at that time the mayor of a city called Acaraú, in the countryside of Ceará State. The campaign against the parliamentary immunity of the accused of the crime, based on a "combat against oblivion", is motivated by radical feelings that produce rituals with the women as the main characters and spokespersons of a discursive explosion. Based on newspapers, interviews with the families and inhabitants of Aracaú City and judicial documents, the author aims to investigate the different circuits of this memory mobilized by feelings that mediate public and private spheres. The article analyses the way politics take place, observing the reconversion of feelings that consolidate family divisions, partisan groups, points of view, showing collective sensibilities and moral principles. In sum, the discussed ideas converge on the comprehension of feelings and values that create distinctive rituals and expressive ways: mourning, slogans, emotions and denouncing speech.
