Description - Fight the Power! by Sean Michael Wilson
In his famous history series A History of the English Speaking Peoples Winston Churchill seemed to think that history was about wars and made by great leaders. Fight the Power begs to differ and instead presents A Visual History of Protest Amongst the English Speaking Peoples. Today's occupy movements are part of a long history of struggle. This book visualises key moments in history where ordinary people have risen up and fought governments, corporations, even empires. When the 99% have stood up to combat exploitation and abuse or in pursuit of freedom of action and a better life. In other words, to show times in history, just like today, when people have struggled forward to FIGHT THE POWER! This comic book covers 14 cases of such struggle over the last 200 years and in several English speaking countries including not just the US and UK but Australia, Canada, South Africa, Ireland, India and Jamaica.
