We Need Some Good News [Anthony McCarthy]

This article 10 Everyday Acts of Resistance That Changed Things might not do it, but it gave me a lift this morning.

We need some practical examples of how resistance has worked under circumstances far more drastically bad than the ones we face. The spontaneous acts in the list, the ones that were innovative and seemed to have come out of nowhere makes it clear that making a difference is a matter of bravery and inspiration, not believing that any attempt was doomed to failure before it began.

NB: Sorry about the broken link this morning. I usually try them after I post them but it's been a hectic day here.
