Activist Theater in the Mainstream

Have there been any other plays/performances that became the center of an activist movement, similar to The Vagina Monologues and V-Day? Was TVM the first performance to bring activist theater to the mainstream?

Seeking memorials (anywhere worldwide) for people killed by police or government brutality?

Memorial / Activist Art: Where in the world are there public, physical memorials of any kind (sculptures, murals, installations, etc.) for individuals who were killed by police or by governments? I'm really inspired by the Omofuma Stein in Vienna (a self-funded/DIY granite sculpture, first installed guerilla-style in front of the Vienna Opera House and now permanently installed in Vienna's Museumsquartier) and I want to document/celebrate similar projects elsewhere in the world.
