by Aric McBay, Full Spectrum Resistance Volume Two Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Full Spectrum Resistance Volume Two books, A thorough history of and guide to resistance movements for those who want REAL change and are tired of simply marching and calling their representatives. The more than fifty resistance movements and sub-movements featured here make this the radical's guide to restoring our rights, saving our planet, and creating lasting change. From mid-nineteenth century Chinese rebellions against colonial exploitation and ecological disasters to the Grassy Narrows' fight against mercury poisoning and colonialism to the Stonewall riots and parades for LGBT rights to Black Lives Matter, Full Spectrum Resistance's two volumes are some of the only books on activism that actually cover RESISTANCE, not just passive, risk-averse modes of activism. Author, activist, and farmer Aric McBay provides in-depth histories and case studies of social justice and environmental movements, both radical and liberal, to explain why passive resistance alone cannot work, and why we must be prepared to do whatever it takes to truly create change. Volume 1 of Full Spectrum Resistance taught us how to build an effective movement. In Volume 2: Actions and Strategies for Change, we learn how groups like the Greek Resisters of the 2008 Greek Television Takeover communicated and stayed connected so they could spread their message, coordinate with allies, and navigate their relationship with mass media. How organizations gather the intelligence and information they need to make smart decisions and understand their adversary's weak points. How movements hamper their opponent's attempts to gather information about them, and how they cope with attacks on their movement through secret disruption or overt repression (COINTELPRO, 1971). How groups raise money, support themselves, and organize the fundamental logistics that underpin any long-term struggle. How movements--such as Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty--take effective action and choose tactics; and principles that guide successful strategy and allow movements to integrate the different capacities discussed throughout the two volumes. We might be losing now, but with the right strategies and dedication there is still time and opportunity to win!

by David A. Phillips, Development Without Aid Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Development Without Aid books, “Development Without Aid” opens up perspectives about foreign aid to the world’s poorest countries. Growing up in Malawi the author developed a sense of the limitations of foreign assistance and from this evolves a critique of foreign aid as an alien resource unable to provide the dynamism that could propel the poorest countries out of poverty. The book aims to help move the discussion beyond foreign aid. It examines the rapid growth of the world’s diasporas as a quasi-indigenous resource of increasing strength in terms of both financial and human capital, and considers how far such a resource might supersede aid. It uses extensive research findings to explore the possibilities for a resumption of sovereignty by poor states, especially in Africa, over their own development with the assistance of the world’s diasporas.
by Kwesi Oginga, Catharsis Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Catharsis books, Very often, we engage in conversations with ourselves that allow us to empty what is at the very core of our being. Sometimes, we cast them as cares in prayers to God. Amidst the internal baggage we carry, there is a wealth of thoughts, ideas and feelings that are worth their weight in gold to friends, family, and acquaintances and even to those who are poised to be blessed, simply because we cleared our minds. Catharsis is my personal excavation of piles of stuff I carry on the inside. I parceled them off in packages of poetry. Sift through the rubble, see what you find. There are poems of withdrawal, strength, courage, compassion, hope, love and freedom - poems of war and peace. Each poem is a conversation with God that lightened my load and my life. Freedom for life and living is easily accessed after a period of Catharsis.
