Using our Sphere of Influence

With apologies for shamefully promoting my daughters blog site but we were talking about the riots in the US over the recent killing of George Floyd by a police man.


My daughter has written an article expressing her thoughts on the possibility of us being able to change future policy through peaceful online protest.

It can be found here:

Engines of Change: Using your sphere of influence to contribute to activist movements

I may be biased, I almost certainly am, but I suitably impressed by what she has written. I would be interested to find out what we think of the idea of online protesting. Can it work and if so what methods do we think are most likely to be successful. Or do we need to take to the streets and disrupt normal activities?

Please respect our code of conduct which is simple: don't be a dick.
