How to Resist
An inspiring and practical set of seven principles to enact lasting change in our communities'This book is for people who are angry with the ways things are and want to do something about it; for people who are frustrated with the system, or worried about the direction the country is going. Maybe they've been on a march, posted their opinions on social media, or shouted angrily at something they've seen on the news but don't feel like it's making any difference. It is for people who want to make a change but they're not sure how.' - Matthew BoltonHow to Resist is about what you can do after the march. In seven practical principles, Matthew Bolton outlines a method for how we can enact real and lasting change in our communities. This is the method he used in leading the Living Wage campaign, which resulted in pay rises for millions of people in the UK, and in building the Citizens UK alliance of tens of thousands of community campaigners.Rooted in the tactics of the American Civil Rights era, How to Resist reminds us that history's greatest social movements have been driven by ordinary people demanding that their voices be heard. This is the approach that Barack Obama used as a community organiser in Chicago - an approach that has been used to fight injustice and resist oppression for centuries.
