Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's a growing new global movement for justice today, and it's largely driven by a new generation of activists. Young people from the US and around the world, are standing up for peace, the environment, and for social justice - and they're demanding to be heard.

Global Uprising documents this new youth movement through compelling first person narratives, interviews with both new and seasoned activists, poster art, poetry, and striking black and white photographs. Issues addressed include globalization and economic inequity, racism and women's rights, police brutality, media control, sweatshop labor and fair trade, the prison industrial complex and the criminalization of youth, old-growth forest destruction, and biotechnology. Older activists and world leaders tell their own stories, offering historical perspective and context. Youth-run organizations are highlighted throughout, as well as other key resources.

Visually and emotionally powerful, Global Uprising captures the spirit and passion of youth activism, honoring young people's power to effect serious change. It will have wide appeal both to younger people and to a range of others who care about the state of the world today - and tomorrow.

Synopsis:

A new generation of activists speaks out!
