Peter Tatchell speaks up for 'people power'
Posted 17 August 2012
This week, Animal Aid’s patron, Peter Tatchell, has written a strong article supporting grassroots activism as a means of achieving social reform.
‘Politics is far too important to be left to politicians. They are often the last people to get the message on social justice and human rights. Much of the time, pressure for social reform is first initiated outside of parliament by campaign groups like Greenpeace and Animal Aid, using challenging, even provocative, methods of protest. These extra-parliamentary activists are frequently the true sparks and catalysts of political change.’
