Resist: Stories of Protest

We live in a golden era of protest. From the anti-gun rallies in the US to the March of Return demos in Palestine, people are taking to the streets and standing up to governments that have fallen out of step with the popular mood.

Bidisha, Nikita Lalwani, Eley Williams and Ra Page were at Hay festival to preview forthcoming anthology, Resist, the second instalment of a series of commissions challenging authors to reimagine key moments of British protest through fiction, while working closely with historians, crowd scientists and eye-witnesses to maximise their historical accuracy. They read stories inspired by British protest movement, offering a grassroots perspective on very hard-won grassroots progress.
