Roblin, Stephen | United States
I became political at a young age through my exposure to the daunting problems facing Baltimore city while playing basketball at a west side recreation council. In high school I was introduced to left activist/scholars such as Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and others, who provided satisfying answers to questions I had about my society’s allowance for such gross inequalities and injustices. ...

Burrows, Paul | Canada
I am an activist and writer based in Winnipeg, Canada. In 1995, I helped found Winnipeg's Old Market Autonomous Zone (As She Shall Deem Just: Treaty 1 & the Ethnic Cleansing of the St. Peter's Reserve" -- merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of Canada's shameful history of ethnic cleansing, apartheid, and genocide. I have a five year old son named Asher, who is near-certain proof o...

Atkinson, Lonnie | United States
2005 ZMI student. I currently live in South Bend, Indiana. Concerned with the lack of political courage and radical vision in today's music, I turned to songwriting as a form of activism. Free to the public, this work is intended not only as a vehicle for protest, but also as an organizing tool.

Sandstrom, Anders | Sweden

I became aware of the horrible effects of our present capitalistic society.I quit my job, changed sides and joined the swedish syndicalist union SAC in 2002 with the intention to work for a different t...
Kurowski, Mark | United States
It's good to be back, so to speak! In the early 90's I was a beginner activist, and I was a member of ZBBS for its first couple years (it started in 12/93, right?). Then I got busy in life and lost my way. A big kick in the a** woke me up, and I'd like to be a dedicated activist for the next 40 years or so....
Evans, Mark | England
These things probably tell you something about me - I got my initial education in social justice listening to Bob Marley and the Wailers as a teenager, then in my late 20's reading Chomsky which led me to Z. I identify with the humanist world view. My favouite comedian is John Shuttleworth. I enjoy all kinds of "roots" music including folk, reggae, bl...
Help with Searching
The ZSearch facilities are powerful and extensive. They can be userd in diverse ways, all from the top Search Page. We have also, however, ueed them ourselves to provide particular focused searches. This page is an example.
In the filtering area you see that it comes with a default choice for account type. That means it is looking for Wrtiers or Sustainers, as noted. If you change the filter, for example, of course you will be searching amoung a different constituency.
You can also put in a name, or a locale to filter your find list further. You can also select a Group and see members who are Sustainers or Writers, or even from some locale, etc.
Of course the locale filter only works for people who have taken the time to enter their locale...so if you don't find many folks, it doesn't mean that they don't exist in the system. Instead, it could be they haven't entered where they are from....
So, in summary, sarch users by account type such as writer or sutainer, by first name, last name, by interest (where again, this only works for folks who entered one), group, or by location. Fill out your chosen feilds and then click the search button. Choose from among the results disaplayed or reset your search to start over.
