this is a resource for activist pagans world wide where hopefully you'll be able to find a group that is close to you or that has a similar campaign interest to yours. Also listed are pagan and magickal activist events. If you know of anything that should be added, please tell me
A global group started with a plan to do synchronistic rituals due to coincide with the WTO meeting in Sydney Australia starting november 14, 2002. Colour The Grey is definitely worth checking out ! There are at least 50 nodes in different countries and the first rite was fantastic.
Big Mention to The Dionysian Underground which is 'an organic network of autonomous individuals and groups consciously working with the Dionysian Current, the wellspring that animates all true libertarian culture.'
High mention should be Starhawk and the whole Reclaiming movement. Pagan activism would be nought if it weren't for these cool cats. Starhawk is the author of many superb books on pagan and magical activism all of which show a great understanding for the need to be active as well as a profound knowledge of what is required. Recommened Reading: Truth Or Dare + Spiral Dance and the recently published Webs Of Power...
Latest Addition: The Cascadia Magickal Activists are a Portland metro group of pagans of all sorts who do magickal actions for Peace and Justice. "We do NOT direct our magick at individuals and we are NOT aligned with any political organization. Our interests are in using our magickal skills to help bring peace and justice to our world on political, social, ecological, and spiritual planes."
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
politically inspired Thelemites should join Thelema Jihad
Don't let the name fool you - this group is open to anyone interested in Thelema and politics. The name is slightly tongue-in-cheek.
Love is the law. Love under will.
activist chaos magicians are invited to join Magical Politics
I've been trying to get the admin Stormbringer to change the name to the Dark Lords Of Chaos, but so far no luck...
activist eco-magicians, who thus far seem to be based primarily in the UK should join The Dragon Network
activist pagans in Canada should contact Bythor to join Gaia Resist
although I must confess to thinking their manifesto is slightly historically innacurate...
activist pagans in Australia should definitely join ActElemental
This crew includes some of the world's best people including pagans from activist groups Omaisha, Green Witch and Inchoate Porpoise as well as many solitairy pagans.
progressive political pagans should go to Pagan Warrior
This e-group, linked with New Pagan is motivated by the "distribution and discussion of information and activities relating to the survival of Pagan beliefs and philosophies worldwide."
Another cool forum is the Politics and Spirit Network
This group was set up "to develop the growing movement to unite visionary new political *and* spiritual thinking - through discussion, debate, brainstorming ideas and projects, networking and publicising events. "
an activist? a witch? love the ocean? Join the Sea Witches
I kind of lost interest in this group when it bogged down talking about Mermaids but i think it's time to check it out again.
The groups RIDL (for the Greater Reclaiming community) and RWTO (more specific Reclaiming activism) are cool, but there is way too much traffic. These groups are generally the more Wiccan crowd...
There is a Colour The Grey group set up in Italy so if the crossover between pagan activism and discordianism interest you AND you can speak Italian, join Colora il Grigio
Will the dark old ones rise again? Absolutely if Yog Swar has anything to do with it. This new group (Dec 2002) of pagans are using the Cthulhu mythos to enhance their anti-capitalist and magickal actions.
Inter Faith ReligionandEnvironment is a forum for discussing possible Pagan contributions toward solutions to the ecological crisis. The context of the debate should be focused on how Paganism can or indeed is already responding to the appeal launched by leading scientists, including Carl Segan, towards greater religious involvement in the ecological crisis in terms of ethics, morality, and sprirituality.
