This has not only resulted in our activism being less effective, it has also added to the endless cycle of ‘us versus them’. Holistic activism is about removing the tribalism that comes with campaigning and instead it is about looking for the common threads that connect us. The current methods are not working and it is crucial that we now to take a holistic approach.
