WORD to Ponder

image
Activist: Someone who’s actively involved in a protest or a political or social cause can be called an activist. Demonstrations, strikes and sit-ins are all ways that an activist might work toward the change she/he believes in.

The root word of activist is the Latin actus, “a doing, a driving force, or an impulse.” Someone who acts on what she/he believes is an activist.

Use in a sentence: “A group of activists are still camping out in northern BC to lend their voice against the construction of a massive hydro electric dam outside Fort St. John.”
