The investigation approaches the activism of strata leadership in order to elucidate who the leaders are, their cultural and social profiles, what type of previous know how's and capitals are recreated depending on there politically active occupation, how they develop their activist careers and how activist socialization takes place regarding leadership positions. In connection with this general purpose, the article analyzes one of the main tasks performed by the leaders; their role as spokespersons of the group. To do this, the investigation approaches a set of primary sources, especially, a political calendar elaborated in occasion of the seventh anniversary of an Unoccupied Workers Movement located in the south area of the Great Buenos Aires. The investigation seeks to show how the objectification of the group is performed through the development a historical narrative about the genesis of the group and categories of public-registration, such as "unemployed worker" and "autonomy".
