Start a Group in Your Area

Start a Group in Your Area

Although there are currently hundreds of threats against local communities, such as: health issues, environmental issues, socio-economic sustainability, etc, etc. - although you may be tempted due to the magnitude of issues to get involved with many causes, the advice we give you, is to focus on one or two major causes that you care about. 

What can YOU do? You can begin by starting an Action Group in Your Area

Take Action. If there isn't a group in your area create one.

STAND-UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS RIGHT!


When communities are threatened they can get organised to resist any threat. History has shown that there’s power in collective actions against those threatening all of us, irrespective of what the threat may be. Stopping any one single threat on one’s own is an almost impossible task, especially when the whole weight of the state and big businesses interests are behind the threat to our communities.

However, in the long-term, any threat to our survival and the survival of mankind required massive investment, but such investments will not be forth-coming if these projects do not look both financially and/or politically viable in the short and long term for those pushing the multiple agendas that are at play currently.

We can’t tackle each and every threat, because currently the number of threats is out of the charts - but each one of us, can indeed focus on those that speaks to us the most, and give it all our attention and energy.

Around the world, community resistance is proving very effective at stopping many threats to our lives, threats to our socio-economic sustainability, threats to our health, and even threats to the survival of the human race...

people are standing up against blatant tyranny, orwellian control and the blatant disregard for our collective human rights perpetrated by a few against the many.

There is no doubt that when communities unite against these external threats and especially when surrounding communities rally round to support them, they can become a formidable force to be reckoned with. So, if you haven't found a group to join in your area, then create one yourself.

The bottom line, is that this is a fight we can only win if we all stand together… humanity is counting on you to do your part.

 

Steps to Get Started 

Setting out to fight against any threat in your area may seem daunting, but you don’t have to do it alone as you will find out that there are other people living near you who are as concerned as you are about the specific threat that concerns you. While it may not seem like it from the local media bias, that there are always people that are not keen on having “the specific threat identified” right on their doorstep, the reality is that they are there ... you just have to find them.

Once you’ve found some like-minded people you can work with, anything you want to do will become a lot easier.

Here’s how to get started in your community:

  1. Tell everyone you know and even those you don't know well – It may sounds obvious, but send texts, e-mails, Facebook messages, etc. to friends and acquaintances in your community, explaining the threat that your area is under. Let them know that you are thinking of starting a group to do something about it. Encourage them to share your message with their family members, friends and even with people they are just acquainted with.
  2. Hold a public or virtual meeting – Once you have gathered a few people around you, you can all invite others to a public (face-to-face) meeting or an online one (Via Zoom for example) where you can lay out your concerns about the specific threat, get support and feedback from the audience, etc. This initial meeting should not be longer than 1H00 / 1H30.
  3. Advertise the public / Zoom meeting with leaflets/posters/posts on social media – When you have a date/venue/time sorted for your public meeting, print a stack of fliers and put them through every door in your immediate area. You can also ask for assistance from people that you know feel like you do to assist you to distribute them.
  4. Make sure you have a meeting register form - so that you can have the contact details of people attending the public or Zoom meeting. This will assist you to inform them of any follow-up meetings, updating info sessions and to stay in contact. You could also use this meeting to inform the audience of a follow-up meeting (your group’s first meeting).
  5. Follow-up - Host a film screening for example – This is a simple and effective method of getting a decent sized group of interested people in one place. Preface the film(s) with a short introduction about the intention to start a group, collect contact details and have the date of a follow-up.

We trust that above will encourage you to start getting a group together in your local community. Find common interests subjects, common concerns. Talk to people ... everywhere you can.

 

Good luck!
