Strategies & Tactics of the Anti-Apartheid Movement:
Bringing Down an Immoral System
No one thought it could be done. The Apartheid system in South Africa was so entrenched, the power imbalance so stark, it appeared impossible to create a wedge to dismantle the system. Yet the enormity of the injustice sent out a signal to people across the globe who began the process of bringing Apartheid down. How did they do it? Connie Field, documentary filmmaker and historian who spent 15 years creating the 10-part series “Have You Heard from Johannesburg?” deconstructed the spectrum of strategies and tactics applied, and how they succeeded in making a change most believed could never happen. What worked? What failed? How can the Occupy Movement learn and adapt methods to make radical change in our society? Join us at Forum in the Park to find out!
We oppose governments that don’t represent the People!!! Another world is possible!!!
All are invited to join in the discussion!
On February 2, 2012, members and friends of San Francisco for Democracy participated in a lively discussion of the past and future of the Occupy movement with Occupy activists Craig Rouskey, Robin Krop, Kames Cox-Geraghty, Ben Hansell and Diana Macasa. The discussion was moderated by DFA's own Ruby Reid.
