"Art, music, and theater are often more effective than speeches and leaflets. Bringing in culture creates space for people to learn, grow, and express themselves. "A spectacular, participatory, creative protest can give participants and passersby a sense of the better world they want to see," says University of California at Davis political theater professor Larry Bogad"
—Jen Angel, YES! Contributing Editor in The Fine Art of Raising a Ruckus

"One source of power for the protesters was the archetypes they evoked on the street. Ordinary people transformed themselves into turtles (and all other non-human nature), or warned of the fate of people and the planet if the corporate globalization agenda prevails. It could be seen as theater, but in dead earnest."
—Sarah van Gelder, YES! Executive Editor
