PM Radical Book Club
11/02/2019, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Next PM Book Club we’ll be discussing George Lakey’s ‘How We Win’. This will take place at the bookshop on Monday, 11th February at 6pm.
A lifetime of activist experience informs this playbook for building and conducting nonviolent direct action campaigns
Beginning as a trainer in the civil rights movement of the 1960s, George Lakey has been on the front lines of social change for decades.
Now, in this timely and down-to-earth guide, he passes the torch to a new generation of activists hitting the streets. He looks to successful campaigns across the world to help us see what has worked and what hasn’t: from choosing the right target, to designing a creative campaign; from avoiding burnout within your group, to building a movement of movements to achieve real progressive victories.
Drawing on the experiences of a diverse set of ambitious change-makers, How We Win shows us the way to justice, peace, and a sustainable economy. This is what democracy looks like.
