An activist response to abuse, personal and political

What if you were in a dysfunctional and abusive relationship? How many times would it be effective for you to ask or demand of your partner that s/he stop the abuse? How many times do you put up with situations where you have no choice but to defend yourself as best you can from vicious attacks against you and/or your children? How productive is it to argue or attempt rational discussion with your abuser in the hope s/he'll see there error of her/his ways?

Protest culture: How's it working for us?

I live in Toronto and in any given week (outside of G20 season) I receive no less than 10 (and usually more) call outs for protests, rallies, marches, pickets, vigils or other actions supporting a variety of causes. Like every other activist, I support these causes but find it impossible to actually attend all the actions. I further wonder if there might be other ways of serving their goals.
