18 July, 7.30pm Bishopsgate Institute, London:
Shaking things up! Modern Day Protest
The world has always seen protest and dissent but in these difficult and changing times, how can the voices that challenge authority really be heard? How can a message reach the widest number of people? Which forms of resistance have the greatest impact? How can support be generated and who is really listening? From protests, rallies and direct action to worldwide digital petitions and 'armchair activism', our panel of experienced campaigners discuss methods of protest in today's modern world.
Speakers include Ian Palmer (38 Degrees), Trenton Oldfield (This is Not A Gateway) and Nadine El-Enany (Birkbeck, University of London and Defend the Right to Protest). Additional speakers to be announced
