100 Acts of Minor Dissent by Mark Thomas is an account of an entire year spent living provocatively. From successful campaigns against Royal Parks and multinationals, to arts and crafts with porn mags, from annoying estate agents, to raising cinema workers’ wages, comedian and campaigner Mark Thomas stopped at nothing.
The Acts were sometimes bold, sometimes surreal. Many brought about change and others were done for the sheer hell of it. Whether at the gates of the Saudi Arabian embassy or the checkout at Tesco – people reacted with laughter, shock, outrage and occasionally anger. Sometimes all of the above.
100 Acts of Minor Dissent makes for dangerously inspiring reading.
