Event: The Rise of the Indignant

Wednesday 22nd, June: 6.30pm

Room B04 Birkbeck Main Building: Free – open to all – no registration

When Stephane Hessel wrote in Time for Outrage! that indignation with injustice should turn to ‘a peaceful insurrection’ perhaps he did not expect that the movement of ‘indignados’ in Spain and ‘aganaktismenoi’ (outraged) in Greece would take his advice to heart so soon and so spectacularly.

    great line-up, but no women!? even having to point it out is upsetting…

    I agree, and it is still time to invite women to speak in this event and in the ones to come.
