Building local campaigns

Date:

We live in a world where we are encouraged to be passive. We can either accept things as they are or, at best, we can ask someone else to do things for us.

Just as there are bosses and workers, there are also leaders and led; and we are supposed to accept it as somehow natural.

Results of surveys carried out in a number of areas in South Dublin show similar levels of non-cooperation.
