There are two kinds of political action : proactive and reactive.
Much in the same way as many protests are reactive, they should not be mistaken as the only form of campaigning, which is long term long term in nature.
That’s why we always need to focus upon a wide number of immediate issues which are at a crucial stage or critical crisis point.
That’s why most of my attention is focused upon stopping the Nukiller power industry, pedestrianising our cities, reversing the brexit disaster, antimilitarism, and pushing for proper recycling schemes.
For many of these issues our time to solve them is very short indeed.
Long term or short term, it is consistent hard slog campaigning work that’s needed.
