Campaign Websites

At any given time there are a large number of campaigns happening around the country covering a broad range of issues and one of the main problems is that people in a given locality may not always be aware of what is happening in their area or that others have already started doing something about the particular issue of concern to them. The list below aims to help highlight and raise awareness of these campaigns.
Indymedia does not neccessarily endorse these campaigns and the content of these other sites is a matter of concern to those involved.
