I am taking a course on “China in the 21st Century” and I am interested in researching the use of SMS/mobile campaigning in protests in China; looking at how it is used as a tool to organize and stage mass protests (I’m thinking something like this).
Does anyone have any experience in this area or know of resources I should look into?
Some questions I hope to address: How was the protest organized and by who? What happened to them? How was the technology used? How has it advanced? Did it lead to other similar protests or efforts? What was the government’s reaction?
