The survey was conducted from October 2013 to June 2014, with three CLS analysis. The technique of participant observation with the adoption of a field diary was used. As a result of the democratic process, although timid and disorganized, there is a horizontal flow of information, which through discussions allows one to track, monitor on public policy, going beyond the health sector, aimed at reducing social inequalities. When discussing about issues affecting their lives and decide by agreement, the CLS are truly democratic public spaces, for democracy expansion.
