Description - Protest! by Alice Haworth-Booth

Illustrated by Emily Haworth-Booth, and written by Emily and her sister Alice, this book is a timely history of peaceful protests from around the world - from 1170 BCE to the present day.



Protest has changed the planet - from Roman times to today, ordinary people have stood up for what they believe in and made the world a better place. Children are more likely now than ever before to make a peaceful stand against what they believe is wrong in the world. The time is right for a book that sets out the history of protest and how it has changed our society.

This book covers the global history of protest from 195 BCE to the present day - from the women's march in Rome, through the peasants' revolt, the abolitionist movement and the suffragette movement right through to Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg.

Also included are The Boston Tea Party, The Storming of the Bastille, The Abolitionist Movement, Women's Suffrage Movement, Anti-Vietnam War, The Stonewall Riots, The Monday Demonstrations, The Arab Spring, Black Lives Matter and much more.

The book ends with a practical section on how children can make a difference by protesting about things they feel strongly about.
