mobile technologies in particular are becoming more and more important here 
- from their uses amongst the anti-globalisation protests in europe 
(assorted articles can be found in the british press, at least), to events 
such as the phillipine coup:
i also have text and images of european-based text-messaging campaigns for 
political action and activism, if you want to contact me off-list.
famously, one british minister at the time of the fuel protests in britain, 
where mobiles were widely used, remarked of the earlier thatcher-era 
strikes, "if the miners had had mobiles, they would have won."
