I'm an artist, educator and activist particularly interested in learning from tactics, props and gestures used as protests. I use this blog as a platform to archive and communicate examples of what I call 'gestures of defiance'-exciting, urgent and relevant actions that link protest histories and present radical potentials. On this blog I'm simply compiling and reposting examples I find as they happen. Months may go by with out a post but the blog as an archive is still active.

Greece football protest: Players sit on the pitch after kick-off
Footballers in Greece staged a sit-in protest at the start of a game over the death toll of migrants trying to reach the country by sea.
AEL Larissa and Acharnaikos players observed two minutes' silence after kick-off in Friday's second-tier game.
In the latest incident, at least 39 migrants drowned trying to cross the Aegean Sea from Turkey to Greece.
