So much is wrong with our world.

Everyone knows it.

But it’s almost impossible to make a difference.

Everyone knows that.

And yet… we can make a difference.

It’s a numbers games.

We just need to add ourselves to the numbers.

Here’s how.

#1 acts of resistance #1

join a union

it’s practical, it’s sensible, it gives you a say

#2 acts of resistance #2

support strikers; join pickets; donate funds

when we support each other we become more powerful, we take back control

#3 acts of resistance #3

join XR – but don’t just join; act

NOTHING is more important than avoiding extinction…

…sort of makes sense, doesn’t it?

#4 acts of resistance #4

join or form a food co-op

the rich eat better and live longer; plan to out-live the f***ers

#5 acts of resistance #5

join or form an energy co-op

the energy companies like us dependent; let’s change that

#6 acts of resistance #6

cooperate; coordinate; join or form groups acting for change; work with others

united we stand…


…well, you know the answer to that one, don’t you?

 #7 acts of resistance #7

break the grip of the mainstream media…

read and support alternative news sources – humanist, socialist, environmentalist, non-corporate; unlike the MSM, they’re not sock-puppets for the rich.

#8 acts of resistance #8


this is BIG

question the media narrative, the slogans, the exaggerated enemies, the nudges towards selfishness or aggression, the divisive sneers, the smearing of decent people…


Socrates showed you how

#9 acts of resistance #9

Challenge the big lies

    • our economy works
    • our democracy’s healthy
    • protesters are the enemy
    • mainstream news isn’t propaganda
    • climate change can wait
    wars fix problems

the liars will keep lying unless we confront them

#10 acts of resistance #10

do ONE THING EVERY DAY to sabotage the interests of the corporations, the powerful and the super-rich

bin a right-wing paper, leaflet your street, don’t buy something they want you to buy, bus out with XR or Just Stop Oil, or join a picket line – do that ONE THING

#11 acts of resistance #11

Recognise and resist propaganda


R_ecognise it’s propaganda

A_nalyse what it’s trying to make you do

P_ublicise the fact it’s propaganda

I_dentify its sources & their motives

D_emolish with logic, mockery & facts


#12 acts of resistance #12


share the history and actions of corrupt politicians and eco-destructive corporations; show them for what they are

#13 acts of resistance #13

use asymmetrical messaging against the corporate media’s ‘wall of sound’: spray can, leaflet, poster, action, story-telling, discussion

they have the media & the money; we’ve got the many

#14 acts of resistance #14

right-wing mags, leaflets, papers, books, posters? You know what to do….

bung ’em in recycling, turn ’em face down on the stands, put better publications on top, superimpose a better message

#15 acts of resistance #15

visit the timelines or conversations of known populists and bigots; set the record straight

they’ve got a platform…. but, on social media, so have we

use the Socrates Bomb to demolish propaganda and lies….

question the evidence, language, logic, motivation and morality of any proposal or demand by those with or seeking power

#17 acts of resistance #17

social media is designed to earn profits and enrage; don’t get enraged

watch out for clickbait and provocation; respond in the knowledge that you have a better message

#18 acts of resistance #18

before you back a politician check their record: Do they have integrity? Are they consistent? Are they honest?
