Protest works. Just look at the proof

Posted on

Johann Hari, who I’ve never met but admire has written a great editorial comment for the Independent under the above title.

The evidence is drawn from the tiny initial protests against the Vietnam war.

The analogy is with the Vodafone protests.

Vodafone won’t pay more tax as a result of them.

But they express the fundamental underlying angst in society at the injustice the ConDems are imposing without a mandate on this country, which are bound to increase inequality in society.

More protests are planned for tomorrow. I hope they are peaceful. I hope they are well organised. I hope they are effective.
