Troublemakers? - Protest in a Digital Age

We regret that this event has been cancelled.

Social media has changed the way people organise and demonstrate creating new types of fast-moving protest groups and challenges for the authorities. From the Arab Spring to the London riots, UK Uncut and Occupy tell us their experience of policing and public responses while experts explain the challenges faced by those who seek to control the movements.

Speakers include Symon Hill (author of Digital Revolutions: Activism in the Internet Age), Jamie Bartlett (Head of the Violence and Extremism Programme and the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at Demos), John Sinha (Occupy activist) and UK Uncut. The event will be chaired by Ian Dunt (politics.co.uk).
