Protest; Shaping Aotearoa by Mandy Hager


Let's learn more about who came before us, and how they shifted the course of Aotearoa's history. This book focuses on each demonstration and activations of protest in New Zealand; what was it about, who did it and were they successful? Starting with Hone Heke and encompassing Parehaka, to the land march, votes for women and the nuclear test ban. Culminating in the climate change marches.

“An accessible and brilliantly told account of the history of protest in Aotearoa, and the ways in which it has come to shape us. From early examples to the modern day, Hager unwinds the tales of political, economic, and environmental resistance in our DNA.” - MP Chlöe Swarbrick
