Striking at the Roots by Mark Hawthorne

Striking at the Roots by Mark Hawthorne

This practical guide to animal activism, by American activist Mark Hawthorne, is an extremely useful addition to the campaigner's arsenal. It strips away the complexities of activism and examines how individuals can make a difference through simple means. In each chapter, Mark talks the reader through a different tactic from leafleting in the street or on college campuses to organising protests to online activism. And his ideas are not mere rhetoric and guesswork. He has interviewed dozens of seasoned campaigners from all around the world who have contributed their know-how to this book. And while much of the information comes from America, his advice is applicable on a global scale. The legal section towards the end is broken down country by country to give a useful guide to the rights campaigners have or don't have. Aside from the solid, practical advice that runs throughout this book, there is a very useful chapter on how to survive the traumas of coping with the cruelty and suffering that campaigners must witness. The result is that this book leaves you feeling upbeat and believing that it is possible for one person to make a real difference. 282pp.
