"One of the great things we can do online is catch people before they get radicalised the wrong way and invite them to get curious about other ideas.

"Many people do get their news from Facebook and YouTube completely, so sharing information online and working on educating and agitating the masses is important. But we can’t forget organizing", says Mexie, the YouTuber behind the eponymous channel.
