Canadian Activism Archives

 Today I launched a new web project for collectively building historical archives of, and useful guides for, social justice and environmental activism in Canada. The Canadian Activism Archives are running as an open wiki, so anyone can contribute to the content.

This project has been on my list of ten million things to do ever since I started the Activist Network in 1999. I believe that we (activists) lose too much when we fail to keep and share our histories. It can be deeply empowering to be aware of the incredible successes of activism that has gone before - not to mention the many lessons learned which we only benefit from if we can collectively remember them.
