History of Revolutionary Activity around the World (links)…

All the signs are there…

(Inspired by Michael Brown and other recent victims of police/vigilante violence. I strongly believe it’s time for us humans to unite against a common enemy.)

Here in the US, it’s the continued failure of the educational system, rule by corporations and the 1% rich elite, widespread environmental destruction, the lack of a livable wage and health insurance/access to health care for its citizens, infringement of women’s rights and lack of equal pay, civil rights violations, as well as continued human rights violations, stripping of civil liberties and privacy, the increasing power of a militaristic-themed police force, human trafficking/modern-day slavery—the list goes on and on…

I’m in for the (way overdue) overthrow of the established order…what about you? Here’s hoping this inspires you to take action! (I need to get out of the armchair activist mode, myself. 😦 )

List of women who led a revolt or rebellion (take note, those among the medieval history re-enactors that insist upon presenting history with a definite sexist, male-dominated bias/viewpoint: (see more on an earlier blog entry, here: https://achaosfairyrealm.wordpress.com/2014/10/23/medievalrenaissance-history-re-enactors-and-feminism-on-the-ground/)

And, when I scanned through these, cursorily, I saw barely a mention of the feminist movement and the animal rights movement, so here’s some links to those, for more information. These links also include links at the bottom of the articles for feminist movements in countries other than the US.
