Distributing Survival literature is a fantastic place to start spreading the word and encouraging people to find out more!
about survival We can send you Survival membership brochures, postcards and posters to distribute or display in your local area. We’ve had a great response in the past from libraries, universities, schools, galleries, museums, craft and health food shops, and even tattoo and body- piercing studios!
campaigns If you would like to support a specific Survival campaign, such as the Kalahari Bushmen or the Enawene Nawe Indians, let us know and we will send you our urgent action bulletins and leaflets to distribute. We can also provide petitions.
stamp out racism Newspapers, television and the Internet have a massive influence on public opinion. The aim of our Stamp It Out campaign is to persuade the media to stop using derogatory terms such as primitive and stone-age when referring to tribal peoples. Survival can supply you with Stamp It Out postcards to send to editors wherever you find racism against tribal peoples in the media.
Demonstrations and vigils are a time-honored way of calling for change. Grabbing a placard and joining Survival at one of our demonstrations or vigils is a practical way to show your commitment to the movement for tribal peoples, and to meet like-minded people.
Screening films about the cultures and struggles of tribal peoples really helps to bring the message home. Why not show a film to friends or have a lunchtime screening at your place of work or study? We have fascinating documentaries and films about tribes from all over the world, just waiting for an audience!
Survival was the first in its field to use mass letter writing to demand recognition of tribal peoples’ rights. Letters are a powerful expression of public opinion, holding governments and organisations to account. Put your biro to good use, and write a letter for tribal peoples. If you need some help getting started, template letters are available on our website.
