As life has been particularly frantic over the past few weeks I've had no chance to write a blog post - despite there being much to write about.
So, just a quick post to give a plug for a new activist resource (including a fantastic new book - available as an e-book for just $1) rolled out under the wonderful name of Beautiful Trouble: http://beautifultrouble.org/
Go to Or books to get a e-copy for $1 or a print version for a 20% reduction: http://www.orbooks.com/catalog/beautiful-trouble-pocket-edition/
There are so many resources out there for activists, and also for activist learning/teaching. For example, I am a big fan of the Barefoot series that I have blogged about previously: http://www.barefootguide.org/download-the-guides.html
The great thing about Beautiful Trouble is that it provides, as the web site blurb reads, "Beautiful Trouble is a book, web toolbox and international network of artist-activist trainers whose mission is to make grassroots movements more creative and more effective."
It can be a fairly daunting business to make social, political and economic change happen, and although anyone can do it, it's nice to see time and energy put into resources being made available.
Although there is a lot of detail in the website about the resources and how to use them, have a quick look at this background video on what the BT collective are setting out to do.
If you buy the book and/or use the resources in some way, please let me know your thoughts.
