Stellan Vinthagen: The Way Forward from Pandemic to A Better World
What if we have fooled ourselves that protest marches have anything to do with social change? That is what Stellan, who holds the Endowed Chair in the Study of Nonviolent Direct Action and Civil Resistance at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, believes. Drawing upon his study of movements around the world, his experience of activism in various movements, and his visits to front-line communities in the US, Sweden, and New Zealand, Stellan will show how the direct action practices of these indigenous and marginalized communities can provide the creative strategies necessary to counter the imperialism of the world we live in.
