Away from the homogenised content and non-stop commercial bombardment which characterise most people's typical online experience, there is a World Wide Web that remains vibrant, democratic, and largely uncensored. Here the inclusive and accessible nature of the internet offers an unprecedented platform for a host of activist groups, non-governmental organisations and other civic and political associations to broadcast their message. Despite the rapid commercialisation of cyberspace, the opportunity remains to for committed groups and individuals to complete for attention with governments and multinationals, and to exploit the internet's qualities as an educational and organisational tool par excellence. The Activists guide to the Internet examines how those involved in politics, civil society, non-profit organisations and other progressive causes can make best use of the net. As well as giving readers an overview of the strategies and achievements of the internet activism today, it also shows how they themselves can use the web to achieve their own campaigning objectives.
