The restoration work in the contemporary metropolis at the same time created new operating mechanisms, making the direct producer immaterial work value through its biopolitical dimensions also produced new antagonistic subject. In Brazil, June 2013, it was configured as the national crack of a global wave of multitudinous rebellions within the great post-modern factory: the city. It is within cities and subjectivity that the uprisings have been developing in the post-Fordist capitalism, which allows us to say that both June as the political balance that came from the electoral racketeering in 2014 and the coup that there was, in 2016, need be analyzed by this paradigm shift. The uprising of June bother because they do not fit into any predefined theoretical or political scheme and that by being unrepresentative and able to gather a great legitimacy and radicalism. The symptomatic phrase of the protester interviewed in the heat of events "writes there, I am nobody”, seems to rescue the cunning of Ulysses as multiplicity, less by its Homeric dimension as a certain agambenian interpretation could lead to believe, and more for what it is able to dispute Within the subjectivity. Therefore we mobilized Simone Weil and Hanna Arendt and their criticism of humanism and the inability of human rights countries to wage this battle. June shades are unbearable because they have broken the spectacle game and affirmed the bio-poised power metropolitan work. June masks were possible because they were based on the "wild emergency of the unnamed class”. What we pursue to this article is this living power that puts in the field of struggles and their prospects a chance to win all, the invention of the institutions of the metropolitan common.
