ThesisEdit

Strategies are the answers to the question "How do we get from the current state to where we want to be?"

In the past, and in the present mainstream of advocacy many strategies have considered themselves mutually exclusive to any other strategy in the interests of "Staying on Message". This single minded approached has been questioned by many activists, including the New College of California Acitivism and Social Change Program. The program advocates for a multi-strategy approach to resistance, in which multiple strategies can co-exist in a mutually beneficial manner.

List of Strategies (more like Categories of Strategy)Edit
