Changes Start with... THE SPARK "at the heart of the alternative west country"

Not In Our Back Yard


Not In Our Back Yard by Antony Jay is a practical manual for anyone wanting to take direct action in their community. It's a DIY book for ordinary people who want to fight development and takes you through the whole process from start to finish, from planning and organisation through to action. It covers everything from gathering allies to staying on the right side of the law to "pre-emptive diplomacy".
