Minimising Risk of Trauma
Activists, all too often, seem to put themselves last when it comes to caring about people and planet.
The macho attitude that “I’m fine” when they are clearly not, or pressuring over-worked people to do more work when they are trying to take time-out, is counter productive.
We need to take care of our selves and those around us if we are going to be able to keep on resisting – and have a good time doing it. This is a mental and physical health issue.
Legal information, support and solidarity is only one aspect of looking after each other when taking political action.
