What is the point of this blog?

I set up this blog both as a celebration of activism and peaceful revolution but also a type of news source, bringing together information and opinion relating to ongoing campaigns and social movements from around the world.

Because the effects of protest aren’t necessarily immediate and dramatic, it is easy to lose motivation and to feel like there is no point being the person with the dissident voice. On the contrary, just because we can’t change everything, does not mean we should do nothing at all.

I believe in the possibilities afforded by an ongoing fight for freedom, truth and justice and politically, environmentally, socially, we can make a difference. As the author H. Jackson Brown once wrote: “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength but by perseverance.”
