EXTERNAL EVENT - (Bishopsgate Institute) Shaking things up! - Modern Day Protest

THIS IS NOT A LAAG OWN EVENT.

LAAG is about promotion and celebration of 'Reason' as a whole (with atheism as the biggest, but not only issue). We list those external events that may be of interest to LAAGers, and to support the whole 'reason' community of organisations and groups. Please note, LAAG organisers may not be present, therefore if you wish to meet up with other members who have RSVP'd 'yes', you can arrange that yourselves in 'comments', or by emailing each other.

Shaking things up! - Modern Day Protest

The final in this series (the other talks can be found on the link above for booking) looking at people who have questioned and challenged common perception or authority over the decades, Modern Day Protest asks how today’s dissenting voices can really be heard. Is 'armchair activism' effective? Do online petitions really work? Do we still need direct action?

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 Ian Palmer (38 Degrees), Trenton Oldfield (This is Not A Gateway) and Nadine El-Enany (Birkbeck, University of London and Defend the Right to Protest). Additional speakers to be announced.
