Dave's work discusses the differences between activism and organizing. From the author's introduction. “Historically, revolutionary movements have been guided by revolutionary strategy and tactics. A successful dual power movement does not spontaneously arise; it needs consistent organising within an anarchist-community framework. If we want to be actively involved in pushing society towards a revolutionary consciousness. After being an “activist” for years I decided to become a community organizer and with that experience I gained new insights in revolutionary strategy: Anarchists can learn a lot from community organising models in radicalsing neightbourhoods and families. Organizing in primarily non-white and poor neighbourhoods around issues of affordable housing and living wage jobs gave me new insights in strategy. One of the lessons I learned was how to begin changing relations of power and radicalising people, through pro-active campaigns around community identified issues.
