 Periyar's Movement
Self - respect Movement : 1925- 39: Periyar's philosophy is that different sections of a society should have equal rights to enjoy the fruits of the resources and the development of the country; they should all be represented, in proportion to their numerical strength, in the governance and the administration of the state.
It was at this moment of crisis, Periyar accepted the leadership of the party because he always felt the need for the existence of a vigorous political party essentialy oriented to work for the upliftment of the socially deprived sections of the people.
By his experience and serious thought, Periyar was convinced that the individuals and movements that undertake the task of eradicating the social evils in India have to pursue the goal with devotion and dedication without deviating from the path and with uncompromising zeal.

Basically, though, the fl cultural movement, as I'll call it here, was at its height in the latter half of the 1960's and on into the 1970s, though echoes of it are definitely still around today: just listen to Lauryn Hill's music, watch Spike Lee's movies, read Toni Morrison's novels, or see August Wilson's plays.

 The Integration of Theory and Practice: A Program for the New Traditionalist Movement
Moreover, the likelihood that this movement would result in a libertarian society is far higher than the likelihood of any strategy succeeding that self-identified libertarians are advocating, because this movement does not promote a direct confrontation with the state, but a sort of "weaning off," or a "walking away" from the state.

This is a cardinal premise of the new movement.

 The Black Arts Movement James Ed
Even now, academic assessments of the Black Arts and Black Power movements are frequently made in passing and generally seem to assume that we already know all we need to know about these intertwined movements and their misogyny, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and eschewal of practical politics for the pathological symbolic.
In the case of African Americans, cultural nationalism also usually posited that the bedrock of fl national culture was an African essence that needed to be rejoined, revitalized, or reconstructed, both in the diaspora and in an Africa deformed by colonialism.
In short, the ideological divisions between cultural and revolutionary nationalists were often a matter of emphasis, tactical maneuvers in wars of position among nationalist organizations and activists, or attempts by African American nationalist theorists to find a workable, analytical structure by which to delineate and evaluate the Black Power and Black Arts movements.

 Transnational China Project Commentary: David Ownby on Falungong as a Cultural Revitalization Movement
In my opinion, the Falungong, or the Qigong movement as a whole, are contemporary reincarnations, with numerous and important alterations of a popular religious tradition, or a number of related traditions, that date back in their organized form to the middle of the Ming Dynasty.

This is an example of the politicization of the movement, and it would not be a very small step from politicization to claiming the banner of nationalism based on the utter Chineseness of this vision.
