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.

DR OSCAR BERGLUND: a Senior Lecturer at Bristol University’s School for Policy Studies who is an expert in civil disobedience and climate change activism
