STRATEGY & SOUL – STRATEGIES FOR FIGHTING POLITICIANS
7.45pm, Friends Meeting House, South Terrace, Hastings. Ground floor – easy access.
Combe Haven Defenders and Peace News are proud to be co-hosting the following event with US trainer and author Daniel Hunter. A story of “ordinary” people taking on big money, big business, and local politicians whose motives are not entirely pure … we suspect there may be lessons for local campaigns here in the UK. Highly recommended.
From the review of his book Strategy & Soul – to be launched at the meeting: ” In an age of stifling politics, this book offers real-life strategy of fighting hostile politicians and corporations. It brings a fresh perspective on grassroots tactics when lobbying, marches, and rallies fail. It overflows with a wealth of fresh tactics to build people power: public filibusters, citizen’s document searches, window washing, practice site occupations, shadow elections, and more.”
