The Debt Resisters' Operations Mannual

Debt, like many things in our capitalist system, is something that people generally believe is an individual problem. But in our current economic state, debt just another part integrated into a system designed to fail. It is a systemic issue that activists need to collectively resist and reject. The Debt Resisters' Operational Mannual was created by the writers, activists and academics at Strike Debt. It aims to give folks plain language tools to resist debt and offers up creative alternatives.

Differentiating your activist work is a surefire way to stay current and increase impact. Especially when you're battling geographical barriers, sometimes effective organizing means getting creative. You can still contribute to international activist efforts from Canada, and merging artistic creations or popular cultural references is a way to make your direct action broader and more attractive.


Check out this database profiling examples of creative activist strategies. Actipedia might encourage you to branch out with your campaigns. If you’re already a creative, artistic activist, at least the database will help you stockpile some new and fresh ideas to inspire your direct action.
