A demonstration is a form of expression and freedom of speech is a human right not a privilege.
From 2009 to 2010 society in Britain changed with the election of a new government and the economic downfall. The rise of groups such as the English Defense League and the British National Party, and the cuts in government spending meant that much of the British population was not happy about their current society. Many protested, whether they were heard, whether they made a difference is a matter of opinion, but they stood up for what they believed in.
This book was created to portray the individuals that made a stand, for the ones that chose protesting as a way to communicate.
There are many different views expressed in this book, what is right and wrong is the decision of the reader.
