Radical organizing seems pretty hyper-concentrated in cities, so I was wondering if anyone on here has experience organizing in rural areas? What unique challenges are there to it and how do you approach it?

@GreenandBlack Western Montana, mining, and timber towns in the western U.S. were once radical hotbeds.

That's changed in the last seventy years. Lot of mining and timber closed in the 90s with global trade agreements undercut them. Unions were blamed, and that propaganda has really taken hold in those communities along with... other less savory ideologies.

Then there's Edward Abbey and his entire cohort of readers out in the SW.

So there's pockets of people, but spread way to thin for effective organization outside of the tribal communities. Would be interested to see examples of anyone interested in rekindling it out here though.
