To paraphrase Paul Mason (2012), the former economics editor for the BBC’s Newsnight programme, it has been kicking off everywhere. Popular protest has become a permanent feature of the global political landscape. Some recent protests have ushered the demise of plutocracies, autocracies and multinational corporations, while many others left barely a dent in the structures that they insisted be torn down. Protests range in size and scale and in mass, density and duration. Sometimes, protests irrupt in a flash of light and noise, or smoke and fire, whilst others reiterate, recycle and rejuvenate persistent claims for social justice and political change.
