Time and again, one of the resounding criticisms of activist movements from the right and from the center-left is our lack of decorum. While we sometimes acknowledge that acts of resistance can be effective, we’ve sanded all the rough edges off of our memories of these moments.
“Gonzo Notes,” my free mailing list, launched December 1, 2016.
At least once a month, subscribers receive analysis of current events, simple tipsto make your activism safer and more effective, and links to my recent writing.
I’m not just a journalist, but also an activist and organizer dedicated to building a better world. My writing focuses on issues of inequality, the war on drugs, human rights, and social justice, and I hope Gonzo Notes can become another way to share my viewpoint with my readers and fans.
There’s a lot happening in the world, from the election of an egotistical neo-fascist to the White House to the continued crackdown on basic civil liberties under a growing police state. In Gonzo Notes, I give you my ideas about what’s happening, and maybe what you can do about it.
I won’t ever sell this mailing list to anyone, or use it to send you commercial garbage. I will share a few links I like, promote other writers I enjoy, and let you know new ways to support my writing.
You can unsubscribe at any time.
