Protest!: How People Have Come Together to Change the World
Author Emily Haworth-Booth and Alice Haworth-Booth
A timely book on the history of peaceful protest, from the Egyptian pyramid workers’ strike of 1170 BCE all the way up to the present day
Protest has changed our planet—from Roman times to today, ordinary people have stood up for what they believe in and made the world a better place. The global history of protest is brought to life in this engagingly illustrated book, which includes the Boston Tea Party, the Storming of the Bastille, the Abolitionist Movement, the Women’s Suffrage Movement, anti-Vietnam War, the Stonewall riots, the Monday Demonstrations, the Arab Spring, Black Lives Matter, Extinction Rebellion, and much more. It looks at creative ways of protesting: student strikes, singing protests, guerrilla gardening, noisy protests, and surreal happenings, and ends with a practical section on how children can organize a protest for themselves.
