Example text

Activism! is least visible when actions are being prepared and most visible when action is taken. It is always this combination of the hidden and the seen, of that which is hard to find and that which cannot be avoided. , the moments when activists try to make themselves and their ethics unavoidable. They may try to make themselves unavoidable in one event – for example, by infiltrating a shareholders’ meeting – and may, at the same time, try to make themselves unavoidable to the whole of society – by creating an event that the media will broadcast.

Most notably, the extraordinary creativity of the May events in France led to hyper-Marxist, often Maoist, political groups who continued what they saw as the path to revolution while, at the same time, becoming ever more estranged from working-class organizations.

Let us now look at a movement that embodied one of these two ends of popular political action: the Snowdrop Campaign.
