Telling the Story of Activist History: A Balanced Approach

Activist history is often marred by sectarianism, a division that was notably evident at Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp, where the colour (ideology) of the gates symbolized different factions. This fragmentation often means that the mos...

  1. Preserving Historical Memory: The Campbell archive holds a wealth of historical documents, records, and artifacts that document the political history and activism of the Campbell family.

In summary, donating to and funding the Campbell archive is essential for preserving historical memory, providing educational resources, empowering communities, inspiring future generations, and promoting social justice. By supporting the archive, you contribute to the preservation and dissemination of important historical knowledge and empower people and communities to engage in meaningful social change. 
 
The Campbell archive operates on the principles of trust-based passive consensus, ensuring that decisions and funding allocations are made transparently and with the involvement of the community. 

  1. Passive Consensus: The foundation of the Campbell archive is built on passive consensus, which means decisions and funding allocations are made based on the absence of objections rather than explicit agreement. This approach encourages trust among participants and fosters a sense of collective ownership and responsibility.
  2. Documented Work: Before decisions and funding can be released, documented work is required to demonstrate the need and validity of the proposed projects or initiatives. This process provides transparency and accountability, ensuring that resources are allocated effectively and responsibly.
  3. Decision-Making Process: The Campbell archive follows a decision-making process that varies depending on the nature and complexity of the issue at hand:
    • Small, non-controversial decisions or funding requests may be announced without extensive discussion.
    • Projects or funding requests that require discussion and input from the community are subject to a visible conversation on the site. This allows stakeholders to engage and provide feedback before decisions are made.
    • Controversial issues require a clear consensus to proceed, following a thorough and visible/recorded open process. This ensures that decisions are made collaboratively and reflect the values and priorities of the community.
  4. #4opens Process: The Campbell archive adheres to the #4opens principles, which include open data, open source, open standards, and open process. These principles ensure transparency, accessibility, and inclusivity in the governance and operation of the archive.
  5. Focaliser: A #focaliser plays a role in bringing together the focus of the Campbell archive and help with the decision-making process. 
  6. Grassroots Consensus-Based Governance: The Campbell archive serves as a working exemplar of grassroots consensus-based governance, where decisions are made collaboratively, transparently, and with the involvement of the community. By adhering to the principles of trust and openness, the archive aims to be a model for democratic and inclusive process

The "foundation" works by trust based passive consensus, with documented work to show this, before decisions and funding can be released.

We have been working this way so far:

* Small, non-controversial decisions/funding, need to be announced.
*  To be meaningfully, projects and funding that need to be discussed, need a visible conversation on the site with people who might disagree, to give time so that they can engage.
* Controversial issues need a clear consensus to go through after a good visible/record open process.

NO invoices or payment that come without this #4opens process can be paid out.

A #focaliser helps to bring this together. This is a space to build a working exemplar of grassroots consensus based governance, based on #4opens and trust, let's be the best people we can be.
