Think the Occupy Movement had no impact in reining in Wall Street and calling attention to massive economic inequality? What would you have done differently? There’s no better way to become a more engaged protester (and citizen) than by looking at protest movements of the past.
Fight the Power!: A Visual History of Protest Among the English Speaking Peoples just released this week.
In Fight the Power! authors Sean Michael Wilson and Benjamin Dickson team up with illustrators Hunt Emerson, John Spelling, and Adam Pasion to recreate the history that matters to the masses through a visually stunning and accessible art form.
From Dublin to Birmingham, from Nelson Mandela to Rosa Parks, Fight the Power! chronicles the protests of the English-speaking nations and shows how, slowly but surely, rights have been won and liberties have been protected by the people, for the people. Fight the Power! illuminates history through the struggles of the Luddites and Swig Riots of the early 1800s up to the Occupy movement, and shows the valuable connections among them.
