"Societies don't change rapidly without disruption."
Roger Hallam is an environmental activist and co-founder of the resistance group Extinction Rebellion. A farmer by trade, Roger attributes the destruction of his industry to extreme weather events. From 2017 to 2019, Roger studied for a PhD in civil disobedience at King's College London, and his research is reflected in Extinction Rebellion's aptitude for high-profile political upheaval. He has explained bluntly that the group's goal is to create a political space for individuals on an international basis to decide "whether they want to live or die in the next thirty years".
Roger's new book, Common Sense for the 21st Century, bluntly outlines the catastrophe we currently face and explains the steps we can take to make real change happen as effectively as possible.
This May, Roger will defend the value of disruptive protest in New Faces of Rebellion.
