He helped organise the Australian Anarchist Centenary Celebrations in 1986, editing the proceedings "Anarchy is Order, Government is Chaos".

Dr. Toscano has led several campaigns in recent years. These include the removal of skulls from the Old Melbourne Gaol which were used for a phrenology exhibition, which occurred, the formation of Friends of Our ABC, an annual commemeration of the Eureka Stockade, and the initiating the Defend and Extend Medicare campaign, which attracted the condemnation of the Minister for Health and resulted on an internal report being compiled by "a senior intelligence official".
