Global Thinker: Die Zukunft der Rebellion  

The German translation of The End of Protest will be published in May 2018!

Es ist Zeit für die ultimative Revolution: Micah White, Mitbegründer von Occupy Wall Street, schreibt schonungslos selbstkritisch über seine Zeit in der aktiven Protestszene und zieht zugleich eine Bilanz der internationalen Protestgeschichte. Dabei stellt er glasklar fest: Wir brauchen eine neue Form der Rebellion. Denn die Erfahrung hat gezeigt, dass der Protest allein Regierungen weder zum Zuhören noch zum Handeln zwingen kann. Eine oppositionelle Bewegung ist erst dann erfolgreich, wenn das kollektive Wirken auch Neues schafft. Wie das funktionieren kann, beschreibt Micah White überraschend einfach und liefert konkrete Strategien und Taktiken für eine erfolgreiche, weltweite Revolution. Er ist die moralische Stimme der gegenwärtigen Protestgeneration. Und dieses Buch sein leidenschaftlicher Appell an alle Aktivisten der Zukunft.
