10 tactics for turning information into action embraced by thousands  
of rights advocates
The documentary 10 tactics for turning information into action,  
produced by Tactical Tech and launched in December 2009, has been  
screened at over 100 events by NGOs, rights advocates and independent  
media, reaching 5155 people.
10 Tactics provides original and artful ways for rights advocates to  
capture attention and communicate a cause. It includes a 50-minute  
film documenting stories from around the world and a set of cards;  
with tools, tips and advice, for you to work through as you plan your  
own info-activism.
With the launch of a new website this week, 10 Tactics is reaching out  
to a wider audience, including groups and areas where language  
barriers have previously been a problem. The film can now be watched  
online with a choice of 25 language subtitle options including  
Russian, Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Arabic and Hindi with the  
facility for users to create subtitles in their own languages.  
Tactical Tech also welcomes those who want to replicate the 10 Tactics  
website, with all its content, in their own languages. In fact,  
Spanish, Arabic and Burmese versions of the website are on their way.
The project lead, Tanya Notley, said “we have realised the value of  
placing inspiration and demystification at the centre of our resources  
because this opens up the conversation about how technology can be  
used for rights advocacy. This project has now gained momentum as  
enthusiastic volunteers have contributed by translating and screening  
the film and by hosting discussions and debates around it."
After seeing the film, a group of young climate action activists in  
Nepal were inspired to use 10 Tactics to develop new climate  
campaigns; in Tijuana the 10 Tactics screening led to discussions with  
the Human Rights Commission on how they can support rights violation  
monitoring. Executive Director, Stephanie Hankey says; “We are  
thrilled with the success of the film and the feedback that we are  
getting. This film is really valued for its inspirational effect and  
the diversity of seeing so many amazing activists from all over the  
world using new technologies to turn information into action. We're  
going to continue to support others hosting screenings throughout the  
The 50-minute documentary, and accompanying resource materials,  
feature 35 grassroots info-activism stories told by advocates from 24  
different countries.
