What is ‘activism’ in this internet age where street protests are extremely governmentally-controlled, and spokespeople for bankster/globalist agendas are mere tools for propaganda?
Wikipedia (a most-trusted source for current, unbiased knowledge ~ LMFAOROTF) states:
“Activism is not always an activity performed by those who profess activism as a profession. The term activist may apply broadly to anyone who engages in activism, or be more narrowly limited to those who choose political or social activism as a vocation or characteristic practice.”
There are also different types of activism.
What I post on my personal Facebook account amounts to ‘citizen’ or ‘internet’ activism, which I hope many of you do. An engaged and active citizenry is essential to guard against tyranny in all forms.
What Southern Time Productions has done, and will continue to do going forward comes under the definition of ‘visual,’ ‘design,’ ‘art activism,’ or ‘artivism.’ Our mandate is not primarily profit-driven, but to make people aware of pressing social, health, and environmental issues so that organic and genuine grassroots movements spring up to pressure the government and corporate forces into taking action. More importantly, because we cannot count on the current power structures to meet our demands, we should build new systems that love, respects, and cherishes our fellow human being, life, and the environment.
We at Southern Time Productions believe that people can responsibly rule and think for themselves, without a ruling elite or state control.
Eventually, we will have another page on this website called the ‘Forum,’ where our fans, followers, and fellow activists can connect, share their thoughts, and plan to take action, TOGETHER.
But, for now, what we at Southern Time Productions and the Southern Time Band will focus on is helping meet UNAIDS goal of eradicating AIDS by 2030.
Ending AIDS is something that can be done NOW. The science is real. U=U (an undetectable HIV viral load in one’s body means that the virus is untransmittable to another person). If governments around the world provided affordable, effective, and consistent medications to all of their HIV positive citizens, and encouraged those who think they may have been infected to get tested, it is possible that nobody would ever perish from AIDS again. Currently, approximately one million people still die from AIDS around the world every year.
I almost died from AIDS in 2009, because I did not believe HIV caused AIDS at the time. I was not taking medications or seeing a doctor for eight years. However, because I live in Canada, a developed country with universal healthcare and government-mandated HIV coverage, I received the best treatment, was rescued from the brink of death, my viral load has been undetectable since 2010, and my immune system is now just as healthy as someone who is not HIV positive. My seronegative partner and I are expecting our first child in 2020, and she and the baby do not have HIV.
Why cannot the relative health privilege that I have received be available to all?
Why is their inequality in our world?
Why are pharmaceutical companies purely profit-driven when the human right to health is supposedly a value we all cherish? We the people should say what motivates the health industry. The antiretrovirals I am currently on were allowed to be made in a generic version a few years ago, and now they cost the Canadian taxpayer about 1/3 of the brand name’s original price tag.
Why are there certain populations in our world that are marginalized and stigmatized? Do we not all have the right to health and to be free from discrimination?
