Top Ten Creative Campaigns

Here’s our selection of ten creative campaigns for change.

In this week's New Statesman, Laurie Penny goes inside the student movement and finds a group battling to find new methods of resistance. Elsewhere, Samira Shackle meets the leaders of UK Uncut and Jody McIntyre, who was tipped out of his wheelchair by police officers at a recent demonstration, says protesters should fear for their safety.
