In the present article, the structure of the radical political discourse of the Chilean squatters is analyzed through the case of the Partido Igualdad. The hypothesis that guides the article is that the discourse of the party has a populist logic centered on the signifier "the people" and anti-elitist elements. Although this structure coincides with contemporary literature about populism, the signifier "the people" would be limited by two other signifiers: "shared suffering" and "dignity", which restricts their possibilities of articulation.
