Streetwise: Historical moments
Rebecca Scharlach, student: I'd probably go back to the Irish revolts against British occupation because it seems like a lot of their tactics were very successful at resisting invasion and have undoubtedly been lost to history primarily because history is written by the victors. I think that I would like to see somewhat more successful movements against colonization coalescing in the near future, and I think that part of doing that is learning from history. And it's very hard to do that when history is constantly being destroyed, dislocated, lost and any attempt to tell the truth about history is being considered crazy and or completely dismissed by the people who teach us about history, who obviously have a very specific motivation behind that telling.
