Paul Finch has been involved with numerous strikes and anti-war actions and has been in the anti-globalization movement, participating in the street protests that accompanied the 2001 Summit of the Americas in Quebec City. He is also a founding member of the Northwest Anarchist Federation, and currently a rank and file worker and belong to the BC Government and Service Employee's Union [BCGEU Local 1201], where he is both a shop steward at his worksite, and a member of the executive for the 4500-person strong BCGEU 1201 Local.

During the recent BC Teacher's Federation strike against the government, he helped organize wildcat pickets throughout the city, with NAF targeting and picketing down a specific area. His workplace, like most unionized public and private workplaces in Victoria, went out on wildcat strike.
