How to move this from the lemma category?

Can anyone help with this? I'm not sure how it got there in the first place. Shamira Gelbman 22:03, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Never mind; it resolved itself. Shamira Gelbman 22:05, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
thanks for trying to improve this article, John, but it really needs a much more detailed historical and theoretical base. As a general guide, when there are competing views it is advisable to include all major ones. In this case, Tilly is too major an author to ignore, so I have put back the reference to his historical claim as well as the new reference. But this all needs sorting out, since something as major as social movements cannot be based on only two references! Martin Baldwin-Edwards 00:52, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
