Activism, a job or voluntary Work?

Activists have always been actively involved to issues that most times oppose government actions in things that they believe are not necessary or if it’s not good for the general public and most of all fighting corruption.

Sometime back, I came across a face book post where a popular activist was complaining of being a victim of racial discrimination in a foreign country. As it’s always the case, such a scenario attracted scores of comments and even some sort of heated debate though only in the virtual means. There are some who felt that the activist ought to be appreciated for fighting for human rights. But this was quickly disputed as some commented that his active involvement was only to the monetary gains that he was getting in return.

Claims of activists getting paid to talk out loud and question the government on anything that is deem med not good for the country has always been there in a HR executive search. But I think that activists are just like those politicians in the opposition only that the former somehow represents the common man. I do not have edible evidence that there is money exchanging hands but what if it’s a full time job for the participants? So they need some morale to do some quality job.

Even as there are a lot of controversies surrounding the real reason of being an activist, let’s appreciate that they do something commendable. I remember like the grabbing of a school’s playground, the activists stopped the ill plot of the private developer. Just like in a debate there is always those who propose and then those opposing emerge with both sides giving their reasons for the move, activists also keep the government on check when it comes to governing issues.

So let’s not look at the cash that may be in circulation for activists, lets appreciate the role that they play for our own political well being.
