Take Positive Action - Stand In The Park
A Stand in the Park unites people in parks all over the world every Sunday morning, 10-11am local time. We Stand in the Park to celebrate freedom, diversity and fairness for all.
Brady Gunn started A Stand in the Park in Hyde Park, Sydney, Australia. Brady made a Stand, alone at first, for his personal truth. In Brady’s early Facebook videos, he talked about making a Stand for freedom, for our elderly, our children, our jobs and small businesses…
“I’m drawing a line in the sand and showing my face for what I believe is right. I’m Standing with the intention to show enough is enough. ” – Brady Gunn, Founder
Brady invited others to join him and Stand in THEIR personal truth. It took almost three months, but eventually they came, and now people are Standing in parks all across Australia and New Zealand, England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Canada, Malta, Germany, France, the USA and more.
10-11am every Sunday worldwide.
It is a Stand, not a protest.
We Stand for personal truth and freedom.
Rain, hail, cyclone, Christmas day… we Stand!
No local Stand? Start your own, and register it on the website so others can join you!

Take Positive Action - Hyperlocalisation
Hyperlocalisation means the desire to produce everything locally and by oneself, be it food, services, consumer goods, news, culture, or energy. More and more people are looking for chances to fulfil their daily needs with locally produced alternatives that serve the values and goals they deem important.
The Covid-19 pandemic is shaping the global economy in new ways, it exposed the vulnerabilities of global supply chains and magnified economic inequalities, adding to the public's growing distrust with global capitalism. It has also highlighted and furthered the increasing concentration of wealth to a small minority.
These times have also driven more socially conscious consumption patterns, with an increasing focus on supporting small businesses that have been hit the hardest by the pandemic.
Already before the pandemic, the increase in the near-monopoly power held by tech giants, and other big corporations, their anti-competitive behaviour had been raising increasing concerns regarding both free-market principles and democratic procedures.
As the pandemic’s impacts were felt unevenly across populations, big businesses, and tech giants in particular, came under further public scrutiny. Big tech mostly profited from the accelerated digitalisation during the pandemic while the rest of the economy receded, leading to heightened discussions on the widening concentration of wealth and power in the hands of few companies.
As governments take increasing measures to regulate big tech and people become more conscious of their right to their personal data, the next decades ahead will have new implications for the increasingly data-centric economic model.
Take Positive Action - Walkout and United Non-Compliance
A Walkout in labor disputes is a labor strike, the act of employees collectively leaving the workplace as an act of protest.
Here is a striking example by Alitalia staff in Italy whom got fired during lockdown as the company folded and then re-established itself as ITA and only hired back a fraction of the staff on much worse terms and conditions:
A walkout can also mean the act of leaving a place of work, school, a meeting, a company, or an organization, especially if meant as an expression of protest or disapproval.
A walkout can be seen as different from a strike in that a walkout can occur spontaneously, and need not necessarily involve all the workers present, whereas a strike is often voted on beforehand by the workers, giving notification both to all of the workers and to the company affected.
The walkout, which is often a silent, non-violent means of expressing disapproval, is often interpreted as an exercise of the freedom of association.
United Non-Compliance is about taking the message person to person, city to city and area to area to help wake people up to what is happening. To demonstrate the power of unity of thought and purpose. I am only one person. Imagine what can be accomplished if thousands and millions of us were expressing acts of united non-compliance.
The first phase of united non-compliance is the awakening.
The second phase of united non-compliance is about taking action through organization and implementation.
This is about more than mass protests. It is about functionally organising groups of like minded concerned citizens that are aligned on particular issues to lead the charge on that specific issue. Mass protests serve a purpose, but in order to truly take action, we need hard working, focused individuals that band together with a common purpose locally. We need individual and group passion for the issues at hand to propel us forward with our message to the masses.
As with Walkouts it's about making a peaceful and legal point, and visibly as to encourage others:
Can't eat in a café without a passport showing full vaccination, start a supper club or meetup and have a picnic on the pavement
School play cancelled, get together with other parent and organise your own outside of school or other actions
Not allowed to have a rally, go for a joint walk, not allowed to do that, go for a joint bikeride and so forth
I'm sure you get the point, it's about getting creative, and have some fun in the process.
We are in a marathon, not a sprint, so get to know and build your local community.
We all need support and each other.
Please ask questions! Please Hold The Line!
