Description

Patrick Philippe Meier:

“The fields of digital activism and civil resistance are converging. In fact, they must if either is to remain effective. Repressive regimes are becoming increasingly savvier in their ability to employ information technologies to censor, monitor and intercept communication. These regimes also have recourse to nontechnical means of coercion such as intimidation, imprisonment and torture. To this end, the future of political activism in repressive environments belongs to those who mix and master both digital activism and civil resistance—digital resistance.“ (http://irevolution.wordpress.com/2008/12/25/digital-resistance-between-digital-activism-and-civil-resistance/)
