Five for Friday….17th February

Here we go with this weeks ‘Five for Friday’. These are 5 great articles on campaigning that you should be reading this week.
1 – Casper ter Kuile asks if the megaphone represents everything that’s wrong with campaigning.
2 – 17 pieces of good advice for anyone who writes email copy, and also a useful ‘Nonprofit Tech Checklist’.
3 – I’d really recommend Paul Mason’s new book, Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere. If you don’t have time to read it, here is a 6 minute interview with The Guardian or the video from a longer talk at the LSE.
4 – It might sound dull, but the European Citizens Initiative will mean if you can get 1 million fellow European citizens to sign your petition then the European Commission will bring forward a proposal for a legal act. More on how it can work for your organisation here but the risks here.
5 – I think that this Amnesty campaign which uses the music identification app Shazam is brilliant.
And if you didn’t see it earlier in the week, have a look at my post on the importance of trust in campaigning.
What would you add to the list?
