Synopsis

This is a collection of in-depth and reflective pieces by activists and other key figures in "DiY culture", who tell their own stories and histories. The book argues that popular protest of the 1990s is characterized by a culture of immediacy and direct action. From the environmentalist to the video activist, the raver to the road protester, the neo-pagan to the anarcho-capitalist, the authors demonstrate how the counterculture of the 1990s offers a positive alternative to insitutionalized unemployment and the restricted freedoms and legislated pleasures.
