I support activists, organisers and social movements. Some of this work is public and documented through the non-profit organisation I founded, CounterAct. Much of it is not. One of my supporters once described me as a doula, or midwife for social movements. I'm providing the support behind the scenes for the people working hard on the ground.

This could be a late night phone call before a civil disobedience action to check on legal rights, it could be debriefing with a young activist organising an event for the first time, it could be providing signal boosting and social media support for frontline activists and marginalised communities. It could be passing on resources and strategic advice to people defending their local bushland who have never campaigned before, or supporting large scale civil disobedience actions with some of the smartest and creative minds in the country.

I write resources freely available to activists (counteract.org.au), and would like to extend my work doing more movement analysis and critique.

Please help me to provide more writing, creative reflections and analysis of social movements in Australia. Also to out-sass our opponents, and make mischief.

This level of support means I will be thinking of you when I sass all the people smashing the world. That's right. As I am knitting yoghurt, riding an electric bike & hugging trees and adorable marsupials whilst fighting corporate mercenaries, the Minerals Council & stale pale males - I am fighting on behalf of you!  Includes sassy email and socials dedication and love songs.

This level of support for my writing, resources, legal support and creative mischief making with activists is sure to get you your own ASIO file. And who doesn't want a copy of that to show the grandkids when the apocalypse comes.

You are the ultimate supporter! You will actually get a love song haiku on social media written for a FOE of your choice. Or a shout out on whatever social media platform blows your skirt up. Plus an email full of fun-times, plus an ASIO file (which I can never confirm nor deny), plus some special writing previews. Do it! Be my. Be my baby.
