In cooperation with resist.ca and protest.net, riseup.net is proud to announce the launch of Activista, a search engine focused on activist resources and vegetarian/vegan recipes. Comprised exclusively of social change websites, Activista helps people quickly find the activist information they search for. As a added bonus, vegetarian recipe sites are included. Why? Because recipes are yummy!
What can I do with Activista?
Well, just type in the words or topics you want to find information about and then page through the results. No ads, no sponsored links, just radical goodness! Try it out at http://activista.org. But wait, there’s more. A few of the many easy to use features include:
– Advanced search page makes it easy to create targeted searches
– Use our plugin to search directly from your browser (http://activista.org/plugin/)
– A multi-language search interface.
– Add an Activista search box to your website (you can also use this to search only your website).
Why an activist search service?
We believe there is a pressing need for a search engine with a focus on liberatory social change. For example, if you search for "biotechnology" in a typical search engine, you get hundreds of entries for biotech corporations. With Activista, the same search returns pages of people working to expose the dangers of biotechnology.
