"Like its predecessor, the effervescent, self-published phenom D.I.Y Magic, which dared to invite its readers into a brave new world of artistic expression and magical thinking, D.I.Y. Resistance focuses its attention on you, on us, and what we can do to survive and thrive as leaders of our own nascent resistance movement during these years of government antagonism and the fracturing of our founding principles and democratic institutions. Reader-friendly to the extreme, Alvarado doesn't guilt-trip or point his finger, but rather reminds us that we the people have the power, if only we learn how to harness it. D.I.Y. Resistance celebrates the power of the individual and shows how the reader can take inspiration from the actions and words of leaders, activists, and historical heroes, how we can learn to take care of ourselves physically and emotionally in troubled times, and do our part to look after the larger community around us. Our fight is not a new one. It has been going on continuously for thousands of years, as individuals and movements have stood up to despots and demagogues. D.I.Y. Resistance recalls the successful actions through which people's movements have defeated tyrants throughout history: Defend free speech, look after your community, know your rights, fight racism and misogyny, organize, protest, network, publish. The lessons of successful resistance are rich and they are everywhere around us. Take note, find your inspiration and your strength, join others around you who share your commitment"-- Provided by publisher.
