What would you do if someone wanted to illegally concrete over your local park, and build an apartment block on it? And what would you do if the authorities supported the illegal construction?
In the sixth episode of the ChangeMakers Podcast, we look at how to organise genuine opposition in a place where the one thing they hate is genuine opposition. How a small protest against the destruction of a local park turned into a mass movement that’s sweeping Russia.
