Protest Tactics/ Disobedient strategy: Lessons of the Italian "tute bianche" (white overalls) movement

The street demonstration has seemingly become the default strategy for change in the face of injustice and reaction. Political protests and manifestations all too often devolve into mere "testimonials to power", and as such have little to no affect on the fundamental structures of power, let alone the practical purpose for which they are scheduled. Has the act of the classic street demonstration lost it's efficacy, or is there a future for large scale, mass demonstrations in the age of SWAT and overwhelming police force?

In this workshop / presentation, TFG Casper, a former participant in the US Overalls movement of 2000-2002, will detail the history of this particular tactic of civil disobedience, its roots in the Italian political experience, the attempt by US radicals to employ the tactic to limited success, and the future possibilities of creative, powerful, and practical modes of mass resistance at political protests and demonstrations.
