With this platform we intend and hope to stimulate discussions about topical social issues and political matters with the aim to contribute raising awareness.
We will do so by sharing our sometime provocative and alternative views on the latest articles about social issues and political matters, presenting our analysis of current practices of social and political activism, and proposing our suggestions and visions for unconventional activism tactics.
Of course, we will take the opportunity to explain in more details the rationale of this research-based project and its mission to give a distinct identity and a stronger voice to social and politcal activism. Moreover, we will expand on the theoretical foundations of activism, protests and nonviolent public actions, and on the analysis of 4 past (un)successful social campaigns and political protests on which this project builds on. We will also make reference to the 9 weaknesses of current practices of activism we have identified. Finally, we will present the added values of the new symbol, suggest how our own activism merchandise products could be used in conventional and alternative activism tactics, and provide the link to our external shop(s).
