Direct Action – Examples of success

Following on from last week’s session on direct action, I have continued to get sent examples of direct action from colleagues working professionally/personally for social justice.

Here is a video of direct action by precarious workers organising for their rights. If you follow it up, it appears to have made some positive gains.


Also, I thought I would share this documentary of UK climate activism called ‘Just do it’, directed by Emily James. A really interesting case study if we consider some of the themes from the lecture. And I think it highlights some of the issues and dilemmas of direct action as tool/culture/ideological really well!


So please share examples on the discussion space and consider why they were successful and what was considered success .

Speak soon and looking forward to the next session,
