In each episode I’ll be talking to eminent guests from the worlds of politics, culture, psychology and wellbeing about how they navigate the challenges of modern life – be they personal, or political.
The first episode comes out next week and is on a topic very close to my heart – the 20th anniversary of the Iraq war and, more specifically, the February 15th 2003 mobilisations which to this day remain the largest demonstrations in human history.
I was deeply involved in the anti-war movement and to reflect on this historical moment, it’s legacy and its lessons, I sat down with Nick Dearden, director of the radical campaigning organisation, Global Justice Now and Asad Rehman, director of the charity War on Want both of whom were organizers of the anti-war movement. Together we discuss what lessons we can learn from that period of history about how we rise up after political defeat.
