Welcome folks, folx and FRCCs!

After a lifetime of being an activist and a student of human relations (aka anthropologist), I decided to set out to understand what makes activists tick.

Detective Drunella

Like ticking time bombs?

Activists get stereotyped as bomb-throwers, but are MUCH more likely to get bombed than be bombers.

More martinis than molotov cocktails!

Drunken, disorderly activists is another stereotype. But I mean it literally–activists get targeted with bombs.
Detective Drunella

I’m for solving bombings, but my assignment here is to investigate the stereotypes.

And fight them! I take them very purrsonally.

JB

I told you we’re setting out to take ém on.

“”Setting out” means going on a quest.

Detective Drunella

How will we know where to go?

JB

We need a Quest Map.

Detective Drunella

You mean Mapquest?

granny gus protect our activists

No, a map for our quest through Bestilandia exploring the liberatory actions of activists.

JB

Pinpointing details of activist culture.

We need our FRCCs along.

Characters

Ready when you are!

Detective Drunella

So what is the Quest going after first?

JB

First we need to publish and reach out with this site.

Detective Drunella

I’ll find out who’s interested and investigate places and people to talk to

JB

Cool. And we need to connect with FRCCs to discuss their experience of activist culture.

I’ll help y’all focus on the conflicts and emotional turmoil.

JB

Um, that’ll be lovely, Sour Puss.

Plus we need to connect with adults and children to discuss and write FFA

Granny Gus

I love to collect, tell and mix up stories showing the fascinating reality of activists experiences.

You’ll need my help unmasking all those insidious stereotypes targeting activists.

Looks like we’re ready to go!
