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 Madeline Carroll (Campaigns Director, 38 Degrees), Trenton Oldfield (This is Not A Gateway), Nadine El-Enany (Birkbeck, University of London and Defend the Right to Protest) and Gobi Sivanthan (Individual activist, Hunger Striker outside London Olympics). The event will be chaired by Hugh Muir (Guardian).
