Slow Journalism Night

Our journalists take an in-depth look at the history of four movements – the Arab Spring, Wikileaks, Anonymous and Occupy – which challenged the established order over the last five years. After looking at their origins and achievements we ask the question: several years after they all began, how many of their goals have been realised?

Speakers
