Thoughts on Organizing for Social Change

In articulating organizing strategies for social change, Dutta (2011) discusses the role of resources in community organizing for social change.
1.Wondering how community or subaltern groups implement organizing campaigns when they have no access to resources. E.g., in circumstances when the dominant structures employ all tactics to prevent such groups from having access to resources. In other words, can large scale community organizing be effectively implemented or successful without financial support?What should the groups do when they are restrained from accessing any form of resources that will support social change processes

2.Also Dutta (2011) highlights the importance of information sharing in planning and implementing resistance projects. Given the censorship of information dissemination channels by the dominant structures, wondering how subaltern groups navigate information censorship
