100 Acts of Minor Dissent
1. 100 acts of minor dissent to be committed in one year.
2. Should Mark fail to commit 100 acts, a forfeit shall be levied. That forfeit shall be a donation of £1,000 to UKIP.
Are you fed up with your every google search, journey, online interaction and other private details monitored and stored by establishment and big business?
Do ever feel the urge to wipe the smile off estate agents and money-lender’s faces?
Do you find the inexorable growth of porn, the Daily Mail and UKIP problematic?
Then Mark is your man.
Mark Thomas’ fifth book began with a personal challenge that ended up having national repercussions – to perform 100 acts of dissent. Failure to complete the challenge would result in Mark having to donate a grand to UKIP. Nothing like a little incentive…
It began on a small scale but soon became something much bigger. The targets were multiple; from corporate greed and public service inanities to infringements of rights. He and his team protested, petitioned, stickered and plain pestered to effect change – watched by bemused policemen and entertained crowds – from Apple stores to Tesco’s aisles, estate agent’s doorsteps and UKIP campaigns. This is his account of the adventure – it will make you laugh, it will make you angry, and it may even inspire you to dissent yourself.
