Podcast 61: Steve Crawshaw on Small Acts of Resistance
“When people tell you that nothing will ever really change, just remember that however clever and intelligent they sound, they have kind of been proved wrong on many occasions in the past,” Steve Crawshaw, co-author of Small Acts of Resistance, tells us.
Big change begins with small acts – many of which may have looked pointless at the time. Such is the idea behind Small Acts of Resistance, a compilation of tales from around the world – acts of resistance, defiance, and disobedience by average citizens standing up to say no to autocratic and abusive governments.
The book is written by Steve Crawshaw, international advocacy director of Amnesty International, and John Jackson, a long-term campaigner for human rights and other major international issues.
