Medact’s blog brings together the online health community. We blog our own pieces as well as co-host articles written by other bloggers who work on the issues of poverty, violence, injustice and inequality.

Disclaimer: The aim of this blog is to encourage discussion and debate on public health issues.

When all we have is ourselves – a reflection of non-violent direct action in social justice movements

When all we have is ourselves – a reflection of non-violent direct action in social justice movements

In this blog, we ask ourselves what is driving citizens to NVDA, how health professionals have historically engaged in arrestable political action and what this has meant, or might mean, for their careers. For this, we interviewed two practicing health professionals about their experiences and insights into engaging in NVDA and how this informs their activism.
