George Ciccariello

Dr. George Ciccariello is an Associate Professor of Politics and Global Studies at Drexel University. Ciccariello made the list after lashing out on Twitter in response to President Trump's decision to repeal the Deffered Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. His first Tweet was simple but pretty intense, "Direct action against deportations". This alone wasn't enough for the professor as he then felt the need to encourage his thousands of supporters. When one user asked what he meant by the Tweet he responded, "Today, tearing it up over the DACA decision; tomorrow, blocking ICE vans and building rapid-response networks." What made us add him to this list however was the the response he gave to one of his followers who messaged him "Slashing ICE van tires." to which he responded encouragingly, "remind to only slash 3/4 bc slashing all 4 will be covered by insurance thanks".
