THE PRICE OF PROTEST – THE STATE’s WAR ON ACTIVISM VS THE RIGHT TO WORK. 

18 January @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£12.50

Taking place live from the Hen & Chicken, a group of carefully selected panellists, accompanied by a host, will debate this matter: THE PRICE OF PROTEST – THE STATE’s WAR ON ACTIVISM VS THE RIGHT TO WORK. 

There will be plenty of time for questions at the end…

Protesters are being targeted and jailed by the current Government. We will talk about the landscape for dissent, what the Public Order Act 2023 prohibits, how it is being policed and discuss this in the context of the recent era of protest, civil disobedience and the social movements that want to combat climate change. We will also ask if Just Stop Oil are getting it right when their action can stop low-income workers from going about their day. What is the price of protest today and how can we influence the issues?

OUR PANELISTS:

Louise Leigh: our Altered State host. Louise will moderate the talk and take questions to the panel at the end.  She will be joined by Jasmine York: an activist imprisoned following the Bristol Kill The Bill protests; Dr Oscar Berglund: a Senior Lecturer at Bristol University in International Public and Social Policy who is an expert in civil disobedience and climate change activism; and Jess Etherington: a lawyer with McCue Jury and Partners who are specialists in human rights and civil liberties law.
