In this paper, Argumentation in social movements speeches, we observe argumentation according to theoretical principles of rhetoric and argumentation. The aim of this paper is to point out the differences between argumentation in modern social movement speeches and the postmodern social movement speeches. The analyzed speeches of modern movements belong to Martin Luther King, Clara Zetkin, Lech Walesa and the postmodern movements speeches to L. Z Granderson, Phila Radford and Noam Chomsky. According to qualitative analysis the difference is revealed in usage of arguments and rhetorical figures but all those movements share common aim for action and tendency toward changes in society and equality that will enable dignified and independent life according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
