A Library of Love-based Activism

The following is a reblog from a site (films-for-actions) that catalogs a list of resources for compassion-based activism. Instead of reproducing the contents here, I will link you to the site, which I assume is updated regularly.

Love-based Activism is the short-hand we’ve started to use to refer to activism that is rooted in an underlying compassion for all beings. It is an activism that resists the strong urge we all face to dehumanize our opponents, as they often do to us. This collection of articles and videos highlight perspectives and voices of people who are striving to stay off the warpath – to not reproduce in our own activism the oppressive mentalities that we seek to change and transform in the wider world.
