Abstract

What is a politics of resistance for social work? A central concern for critical and radical social work has been around the Leninist question of what it is we ought to do now? What shall we do in the face of injustice? What form of resistance is possible for us? What can we do as activ¬ists? Activating the potential of the oppressed has always been a key slogan among our radical comrades.
