Mark Allen - Holistic Activism

We’re joined by Mark Allen who discusses his holistic approach that he has developed through many years of activism. According to his zine on holistic activism, this approach provides ‘some ideas about how we can reduce conflict among activists, create campaigns that are long lasting, reach out and connect with people who have different values to that of our own and work towards a meaningful shift in paradigm.’
