Illustrated by award-winner Emily Haworth-Booth, and written by Emily and her sister Alice, this book was partly researched here at People's History Museum
Protest has changed the planet – from Roman times to today, ordinary people have stood up for what they believe in and made the world a better place. Children are more likely now than ever before to make a peaceful stand against what they believe is wrong in the world. The time is right for a book that sets out the history of protest and how it has changed our society.
This book covers the global history of protest from 1170 BCE, when workers on the pyramids in Egypt went on strike for more food, to the present day, with the school strikes for climate. From the women’s march in Rome, through the peasants’ revolt, the abolitionist movement and the suffragette movement right through to Extinction Rebellion and Black Lives Matter.
It also looks at creative ways of protesting – theatrical interventions, singing protests, guerrilla gardening, tree-sitting, noisy protests and surreal happenings.
