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. Michael Randle, 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.Buy tickets
