Arab Spring – Rallies supporting the uprisings in Libya, Bahrain, Egypt, and Syria.
Local Issues – Issues specific to Edmonton, as opposed to global movements.
May Day Marches – Formerly only linked under Labour, the annual May Day March now has a category of its own (like the Pride Parades).
Occupy Edmonton – A movement spawning many actions – enough to have its own category.
Organizations – With subcategories for such organizations as the Parkland Institute, Council of Canadians, Edmonton Anarchist Book Fair, Edmonton Small Press Association, and others.
Political Actions – Rallies and events that deal specifically with politics, like trying to influence public policy on a particular matter or broader issues like the (defeated) SPP and recent Robocall scandal.
Women’s Issues – Events dealing with human rights issues pertaining to women.
