Feel free to add resources about activism on this page. Please make sure the resource follows the following guidelines:
- The resource is about activism in general. If there is a page on this website that is more related, add it on that page. For example, a resource on how to organise a protest march fits better on the page about protest marches. This way it becomes easier to find the right resources.
- Resources in other languages should be added to the resource pages of those languages, unless there are translations or subtitles available. If no resources page exists for your language yet, you can create it yourself.
- Summarise what the resource is about. Add (if applicable) the author, the year of publication, and a brief summary of the contents of the resource.
