Differences in Desired and Actual Outcomes between Moments in the course of a Social Movemen


To better grasp the process by which discrete actions in the course of a social movement are designed I will undergo a case study of the Anti-Surveillance movement. I plan to compare and contrast the Stop Watching Us and The Day We Fight back actions within the greater scope of the Anti-Surveillance movement to better grasp the process behind organizing protest actions with different intentions. This analysis will glean information about how organizers’ intentions are reflected in the outcomes of their protests, and how actions with differing designs, goals, and outcomes may be constructed using a common infrastructure set in place by the overarching movement.
