Rebel, Rebel: The Protestor's Handbbook

Paperback
Are you worried about global warming? Furious about GM crops? Sick to death of human rights abuses, unaffordable housing, junk food, airport enlargement, or just the way your neighbours' dog doesn't clean up after itself? Are you desperate to right a wrong or to protect your way of life, but don't know where to start? Then this book is for you. Step by step, journalist and activist Bibi van der Zee reveals just how easy it is to launch, publicise and fund a campaign and to put pressure on politicians and businesses using tools ranging from letter-writing and boycotts to protest marches and direct action. If all that's holding you back is a feeling of 'what difference can I make?', then this book will shake you out of your apathy once and for all.But if all that's holding you back is uncertainty about what you can do or say without landing yourself in jail, you'll find jargon-free explanations of your legal rights, as well as inspiring interviews with veteran campaigners. Above all, you will realise how much you can achieve, and how rapidly the barriers to action fall away.
