The uneven convergence of digital freedom activism and popular protest

The uneven convergence of digital freedom activism and popular protest | News Media, journalism and digital convergence | 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. This article proposes an alternative theory of the new protest movements centred on the growing convergence of the global movement for digital freedom with local forms of social unrest.
