The revolution is not a protest movement

Wednesday, Aug. 26, noon – Sie room 150

Studies show that the number of protest movements have increased exponentially over the last decade. But are these movements the Civil Rights, Anti-Apartheid, independence movements of our time?

This talk will discuss what happens after the protest and if we can really point to these mass mobilizations as a means for structural change.
