Direct Action = Social Change?
5 April 2011 - Impact Hub


Last week at sexy salad, a few of our members got into a debate over whether or not direct action could actually affect social change, so we decided to see if the board in the loo could help us sort it out.  On the left are direct actions that have been tried but have failed, and on the right are the ones that have succeeded.  Among those that have succeeded, we have the Civil Rights Movement, women’s suffrage, and anti apartheid.  There were also quite a few that could go either in failures or successes depending on the way you look at them.
