Cyberprotest is an exploration of contemporary radical Internet activism in Britain, specifically the context, tensions and outcomes of environmentalists' use of the Internet. Examining a wide variety of groups--from radical direct action protesters to the political lobbying of Friends of the Earth--it allows activists to relate their experiences and the workings of frontline activism. Internet use in all the stages of activism--from long running campaigns to short term intense tactics--is analyzed.
