A rich profile of protest and global communication
AbstractReviewed book by UNESCO Publication date: October, 2011 On 15 February 2003, several millions of engaged, networked and technologically enabled protesters took to the streets of world capitals to demand the halt of US-UK plans to invade Iraq. This broad coalition of opposition, which transcended the persistent localising imperatives of specific issues, identities, affiliations and interests, was global in scope and expressed clearly the ‘imagined solidarity’ or ‘global civil society’ of which it is the aspiration of transnational protest to mobilise.
