Roaring the latest revolutionary news, analysis, ideas, actions, tweets, tunes, photos, videos and doodles from the front-lines of the global justice movement!
They say necessity is the mother of invention. As you may have noticed, we have not been roaring as regularly in recent days as we would like to. A combination of time constraints and an overflow of information have made it pretty much impossible to stay on top of all the incredible developments sweeping across the globe. From the second coming of the Egyptian revolution to the deepening crisis in Europe, and from the looming crackdown on OccupyLA to the occupation of the Durban climate talks, there’s simply too much happening to carry on with business-as-usual.
That’s why we are shifting tactics: we decided to drop the futile effort to write the news ourselves. Instead, we will focus on what we like to do best: reflecting on the revolution. But in the meantime, we obviously want to keep sharing the most important news with you, which is why today we are launching an exciting new experiment: The Daily ROAR. Using the amazing new Storify aggregator, we will select what we consider to be the most important and most inspiring news, analysis, ideas, actions, tweets, tunes, photos, videos and doodles — and share it with you on a (near) daily basis!
Please note that if you are reading this on our mailing list or in your RSS feed, you will have to visit our website to be able to see the Storify. You can find the permanent link to The Daily ROAR here.
