That was the year that was: video blog of 2009

The revolution may or may not be televised, but rest assured it'll be on YouTube. The use of video is increasingly important for political activists - a vital tool for communicating ideas and experiences.

Here's my top 10 activist/radical short videos (average length 3 minutes) of the year. I have posted all of them on Luna17 before - the month in brackets refers to when I originally shared the video via this blog. Although I'm not installing one of those fancy poll widgets, you are very welcome to leave a comment saying which is your favourite!
