This concluding chapter explores the development of different social movements and the push for environmental policy change. It profiles three powerful advocates for change – the organizer, Angelo Logan, in Los Angeles; the inside-outside player and policy leader, Christine Loh, in Hong Kong; and the champion of a place-based resistance and activism – the late Xiao Liangzhong. It evaluates the differing roles of social movements and protest actions, their ability to bring about change, and the search for an alternative politics that is at once local and global.

Keywords:   Angelo Logan, Christine Loh, Xiao Liangzhong, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Daya Bay, city of protests, Progressive L.A, paraxylene
