#CR144 - Ecosystems of Resistance

Activism is diverse, and they say diversity makes us stronger.  So, this edition will showcase the myriad faces of activism, throughout FoE, and the extended enviro-social justice movement on this continent (so-called Australia). Some the questions to explore include:

  • What's your, or your collective's way, of being an activist?
  • How does change occur, for you?
  • What processes, stories, theories of change, do you/your collective use?
  • How can the diversity of campaigns, tactics, and structures interact with each other? How are they already interacting?
  • We're also keen to hear collective intros and updates from across the nation - showcasing the diversity in FoE's extended network.
    • What are some recent lessons you/your campaign has learnt?
    • What are you/your collective currently excited about around change-making?

These are teaser questions - there's sure to be heaps more to explore, and we'd love to hear it!

As always, get in touch in you have any questions!

Articles Due: Wednesday 5th October, 2022

We welcome articles, book reviews, campaign updates, artworks, poems, stories - even if you've never written or published anything before. So get in touch with your idea!
Unfortunately we cannot pay for contributions, although we do have a small fund for First Nations contributors. All contributors get a free copy of the edition though!

Contributing to Chain Reaction 

  1. Get in touch (via email) to share your idea, and we’ll discuss the best length/edition. Expressions of interest close a week before the submission due date.
  2. If you want us to work with you on your piece (e.g. writing style, flow of the piece etc.), send us a draft (via email) – at least a week before the submission deadline.
  3. Submit your article to the edition’s Submission Form - by the submission deadline.
  4. We’ll then liaise with you as we edit, polish, and proofread the article (note - editing and proof-reading are different processes; we may work with you on editing the piece, before we proofread the final version.)
  5. We compile and print the magazine (this can take up to 2 months after you submit!).
