When does a riot become a revolution? When does
a demonstration of dissent tip over into a moment of unstoppable political
change? Comma Press asked 20 authors to bring to life crucial moments of
British protest as diverse as the Miners’ Strike, the Suffragettes, the
Peasants’ Revolt and the Civil Rights Movement. Jacob Ross, Kit de Waal, Maggie
Gee and Stuart Evers read from some of the stories and discuss the powerful and
moving acts of dissent that have helped change the world, at a time when we
need to re-learn the act of political protest.
