We argue that the different dynamics and outcomes in the two cases have resulted from sometimes subtle differences between the cases with respect to in a combination of three factors: a the strength of local solidarity and organizational capacity, b the capacity of campaigners to recruit national political and civil society elites in support of community claims, and c the extent to which grassroots claims have been supported by transnational mobilization.

The contention drew tourists from all over the world on long journeys to say goodbye to a place they did not know.

More specifically, it looks at Arab contentious politics at one Occupy site — Occupy Oakland OO , and identifies the frames and tactical repertoires Arabs drew on to relate both protest movements. The chapter adds to the scholarship on the ways in which immigrants shape political struggles in cityscapes, turning the latter into transnational political fields. Furthermore, it seeks to integrate Arab migrant communities into the literature on social movement theories. Although they are firmly integrated in the Diaspora literature, Arab communities have been only superficially addressed as actors in transnational movements.

The movements we discuss here also utilize, albeit in varying degrees, a rights-based approach to defend their mobilizational practices.
