Grassroots comics are made by socially active people themselves, rather than by campaign and art professionals. They are genuine voices which encourage local debate. They are inexpensive and the technology is not complicated – pens, papers and access to a copying machine are usually enough.
What matters is a good story with local content, made for local distribution in places such as bus stops, shops, offices, clinics, schools, notice boards, etc. People are always interested in what their local activists and organisations have to say.
