Monday Action: Go to “out of action”

See also “Monday Action”, linked above.

Having just been running around madly on lots of protests, writing a Monday Action seems like the last thing I want to do.  During the G8, a dedicated team called “Out of Action” provided a mix of silent reflection space and activist trauma support.  For those who don’t know, Activist Trauma is one of the most overlooked, under-rated and forgotten about support-structures required for a decent round of protests.  So I thought I’d break off the endless action suggestions, and just recommend everyone has a week to be ‘out of action’; besides, we’ve got the whole of the rest of the summer to do stuff in.

Disclaimer and Link: The following website may be of use to anyone who has seen or experienced traumatic stuff on protests, or who’s mental wellbeing is suffering as a result of activism.  However, it contains some dubious points, especially with regards mental health pro’s which I don’t support.  If you think you have been affected, seek a counsellor immediately.
