Unser heutiger Gast ist Ronny Kraak, besser bekannt als das Kraftfuttermischwerk und wir müssen leider aus gegebenen Anlass das lästige Thema Abmahnungen aufgreifen. Doch beginnen wir zunächst mit ein paar Fehlerkorrekturen und widmen uns der Traumwelt der elektronischen Wahl, den Kollateralschäden der WikiLeaks-Saga, den Kollateralschäden von Demobesuchen, der Wirkungskraft von Petitionen und dem nicht enden wollenden Ruf nach Netzsperren auf der Welt.

The Obama campaign vividly demonstrated the power of mass civic participation. But many organizers still struggle with questions of efficacy and legitimacy. Panelists addressed the following questions:
* Can we mobilize large groups of people while also fostering a sense of engagement by individual participants? * How can an organization’s members hold their leaders accountable? * What distinct challenges arise when working with communities that face social, economic, or political marginalization? * How can we apply lessons from electoral campaigns, which are date-specific and focused on candidates, to community- and issue-based organizing?
Veteran organizers Zack Exley, Ai-jen Poo and Zephyr Teachout discussed these and other questions as they drew lessons from past mobilizations—including the Dean and Kerry campaigns, Domestic Workers United, MoveOn.org and others—and offered ideas for building grassroots power today.
Bill Vandenberg, director of the Open Society Institute Democracy and Power Fund, introduced the panel.
