Summary
"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. In Full Spectrum Resistance, Volume 1: Building Movements and Fighting to Win, we learn why we need resistance movements, how movements--such as the Deacons of Defense of the American Civil Rights Movement--fight when they want to win, and what makes movements effective. We also learn how and why people join movements and how we can successfully encourage them--as the anti-colonial revolution in Guinea and Cape Verde did. How groups like Act-UP form and organize themselves, and rules and practices groups use to stay secure and protected from infiltration by destructive people. 'I wrote this book because we are losing,' says McBay in chapter one, and he's right. Here's how we win"--
