Old social movements have been focused on only economic benefits, aim to take hold political power, central organized and also consists of one social class members generally (Touraine, 1992: 142-43). The NSMs has been emphasized non-economic characteristics of the life more than economic benefits. The subject of the NSMs is not only members of one social class but also people from different socio-economical levels. The NSMs is based on people who struggle for a common goal.
