What are ‘the radicals’ as an entity?

For those who were paying attention when reading the ‘About’ section, you’d be in the know, but we’ve made these sassy FAQs for the rest of you. ‘The Radicals’ is a storytelling initiative powered by the Guerrilla Foundation that explores contemporary radicalism, reclaims what it means to be radical and showcases the diverse faces of root-cause activism worldwide. This is a 100% non for profit initiative. Unless we mean that the planet and society and peace profits.

Why is radicalism important?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. often referred to ‘the fierce urgency of now’ in his speeches, highlighting the time pressure we were under as a society to address civil injustices. With the mounting environmental collapse indications, many of us believe that we have both need to act fast but also deep and this what radical means. It means from the root up, it means intense, large-scale, totally re-worked ways of being so that we don’t all crumble under the capitalocene. Cos that would suck. Big time.

Why is storytelling important?

Words carry with them a lot of power and if you line up words in a really sweet way, you can tell a story, that can immerse, challenge, bewilder, inspire and just impact us homo sapiens in all kinds of crazy ways. So we believe that crafting good, honest, inspiring stories and sharing them is a neat tactic towards social transformation.
