Truth and Power: New TV series on ordinary people exposing corruption from Brian Knappenberger ('Internet's Own Boy')

“Those who’ve watched protests in recent years know that traditional physical civil disobedience doesn’t create the iconic narratives and images that it once did. And thus, not surprisingly, what it means to protest is changing.
