About the Author:

Thomas Harding is the co-founder of Undercurrents, Britain’s first video news service. He is a leading voice in international video activism and has written for the Independent, Guardian, New Statesman and New Internationalist.Thomas Harding is a leading voice in international video activism and has worked with fellow activists and taught courses on the potential of the new electronic media in the hands of activists, protesters and concerned citizens worldwide.

Review:

'The global protest movement is growing because activists are learning to tell their own stories, to capture their triumphs on tape, and share them with others around the world. This book is about media that doesn't just cover activism, it is activism, a crucial part of the process of reclaiming public space and communities.' --Naomi Klein, author of No Logo  'Crucially, Harding covers not just the 'hows' and 'whats' of vid-activism, but also the vital 'why' question. Why do it? Because this is about democracy and empowerment. Vid-activism is about circumventing the hopeless conventionality, commercialism and conservatism of the mainstream media ... Buy it. Read it. Act on it. Your world will never be the same again.' --Charles Secrett, Director, Friends of the Earth
