Avoiding Trauma

Estimated reading: 1 minute 76 views

Activists, all too often, seem to put themselves last when it come to caring about people and planet. The macho attitude that “I’m fine” when they are clearly not or hassling over-worked people to do more work when they are trying to take some time for themselves 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 having a good time doing it. This is mental as well as physical health issue.

Legal information, support and solidarity is only one aspect of looking after each other when taking political action.
