Popular Resistance 2014
Popular Resistance is a great website that covers progressive activism occurring in the U.S. and around the world. Popular Resistance promotes peaceful grass-roots movements. Popular Resistance believes in principled dissent, meaning they are NOT a professional non-profit community – in order to avoid any funding with strings attached.
Popular Resistance evolved from the Occupy Wall Street movement. It’s still free.
Here is the latest Popular Resistance newsletter. Seeing progressive activism as a marathon with hurdles, instead of sprints, Popular Resistance outlines a sane and intelligent approach for 2014 advancements.
Last week, we defined where today’s social-political movement is within the eight stages of successful movements. This week, we delve deeper into the tasks of the movement in this stage and apply those tasks to current issues faced today.
Our goal is to build a mass movement, which has the support of super-majorities of Americans and has mobilized up to 3.5% of the population. Therefore, the target of our protests is not the government or a corporation, the target is the people, to educate and mobilize them. We protest the power holders to expose their actions but do not expect them to be capable of addressing our concerns adequately in this stage.
