another. Latham Hunter’s (2003) analysis of representations of masculinity at the movies confirms this. Hunter cites the influence of several popular films on everyday practices and attitudes: the popularity of British movie Billy Elliot (2000), for example, saw a significant increase in the number of boys taking up ballet. As Hunter points out, ‘film is not just text … it also influences the circumstances of culture’ (2003: 71). In innumerable ways, on-screen and off-screen worlds intersect.

subsequent split from the (Trotskyist) Fourth International. Clift eventually established the SWP in its present format in 1977, having evolved through various incarnations. Throughout the 1990s the SWP was established as the dominant player on the far-left of British politics, following the waning of the industrial unrest of the 1970s and 1980s and the eventual failure of entryist projects. Although often described enigmatically as the ‘anti-globalisation’ movement by commentators and many of its practitioners, the transnational protest movement during the 1990s was seen

Introduction T h r o u g h o u t its brief history, photography has had a close relationship to social movements. From the Commune of Paris in 1871, the first political uprising to be captured by camera, to the 1990s anti-globalisation movement, the photographic medium has played a crucial role in political struggles.1 The camera’s presence at very important moments of political resistance resulted in some of the best-known photographs in the history of twentieth-century photography. Some of these photographs transcended the historical and geographical

Death and press photography in the anti-capitalist protests in Genoa 2001

Western protester in the anti-globalisation protests that took place in an Italian city.16 The first self-evident difference is that torture and death at this point is not the result of an appalling war, but of a public demonstration in a democratic society. In theory, any of the Western citizens who travelled to Genoa to protest could have been in Guiliani’s position. This therefore urges us to think how the European mass media represent political protest, and whether press representation of the anti-G8 protests in Genoa are indicative of a wider mass media policy.

processes of change (both imply movement and change). Throwntogetherness means the way in which different ­elements – social, cultural, material, human, non-human – come together and define a here and now; it is used to stress the ‘coexistence of multiple stories-so-far’.6 This multiplicity of stories-so-far in the first chapter illuminates the transnational affective networks of anti-globalisation movements, the plurality of elements in relation with each other in the EuroMayDay parades, and the ways in which objects, visual and material culture animated it.

. Emergence: the irresistible rise of resistance to neoliberalism This intercontinental network of resistance, recognising differences and acknowledging similarities, will search to find itself with other resistances around the world. This intercontinental network of resistance is not an organising structure; it doesn’t have a central head or decision maker; it has no central command or hierarchies. We are the network, all of us who resist. (Subcommandante Marcos 2003: 37) The emergence over the past decade of what the media has (erroneously) termed the ‘anti-globalisation

(Nordin and Weissmann 2018 ). From a political point of view the impact of the financial crisis added fuel to populist right-wing arguments against migration. Since 2016 many countries have started to face the empowerment of populist parties, politicians or ideologies, either through referendums such as the one on Brexit (June 2016) or through elections as in the US (November 2016). These pro-nationalist and anti-globalisation movements have severely criticised the EU project and in particular the idea of an “Ever Closer Union”. Within the EU there

Few if any of the participants in the Bahrain Revolution would have known of Stop the City, but a genealogy connects them via the anti-globalisation and anti-capitalist protests of the later 1990s to 2000s and the Occupy! movement.12 Bahrain has a long history of uprising against, firstly, de facto
