Rise Up! The Art of Protest
by Jo Rippon. Foreword by Chris Riddell
In collaboration with Amnesty International
Human rights belong to every single one of us, but they are often under threat. We can use our rights to peaceful protest and freedom of expression to protect the powerless, give strength to the weak and speak for those who have no voice. It unites us in our journey to make the world a better place for everyone.
Rise Up! The Art of Protest looks at protests from the last 100 years or so, the causes that inspired them and how these issues are being protested today. These posters have inspired generations of people to stand up for what they believe.
Jo Rippon lives in London with her husband and children. She is a graduate of Central Saint Martins and the University for the Creative Arts. She is a writer and editor of books for adults on music and art.
