WikiLeaks: Conspiracy of Governance to the Courage to Inspire - CounterPunch

WikiLeaks: Conspiracy of Governance to the Courage to Inspire - CounterPunch | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In 2010, ongoing wars and government corruption spread through a fog of apathy. The world appeared to be reaching a tipping point for either global crisis or transformation. In this climate, WikiLeaks emerged into the limelight like a call to the conscience of humanity. Over the last few years, they released secret documents revealing Kenyan government corruption, Iceland’s financial collapse, the criminality of US wars in the Middle East and more. Their very existence and what they revealed called into question the legitimacy of imperial power structures around the world.

The uneven convergence of digital freedom activism and popular protest

The uneven convergence of digital freedom activism and popular protest | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The existing literature on the recent global wave of social protest ranges from theories that regard new media as ‘game-changers’, to those that stress the centrality of global communication networks or of online/offline articulations in the occupied squares, to those that seek explanations not in new media but in the protracted crisis of financial capitalism.
