THE ACTIVISTS: War, Peace, and Politics in the Streets

November 5, 2012

My good friend and awesome protest/network scholar Michael Heaney at the University of Michigan has released a documentary film, THE ACTIVISTS: WAR, PEACE, AND POLITICS IN THE STREETS. The film is with Melody Weinstein and Marco Roldán and, in addition to the central message of the film, shows the power of releasing academic work in a format that can reach a larger audience.

For a limited time, Michael’s film is available for free viewing (just viewing – not downloading) here.
