We live in a golden era of protest. From the anti-gun rallies in the US to the March of Return demos in Palestine, people are taking to the streets and standing up to governments that have fallen out of step with the popular mood. Resist is the second installment of a series of commissions challenging authors to reimagine key moments of British protest through fiction, while working closely with historians, crowd scientists and eye-witnesses to maximise their historical accuracy.
Donny O’Rourke discussed his part in an anthology which gets under the skin of key moments of British protest, where writers worked closely with historians, crowd scientists, and activists.
