2013 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, the apogee of the U.S. Civil Rights movement. Activist tactics such as sit-ins, boycotts, passive resistance, and mass marches have continued and added new forms through e-petitions, Move On.org, Twitter, and Facebook. This roundtable’s participants reflect upon how movement strategies have developed in different places around the world over the previous half-century and how they have and have not been enhanced by social media and the Internet in the digital age.
