Adam McGibbon is an activist and writer originally from Belfast. He has a long history of being involved in social and environmental protest. He was Vice President of Queen’s University Belfast Students’ Union during the successful 2010-11 campaign to stop university tuition fee increases. He has been involved in direct action protests against tax avoiders, occupations, and recently ran a successful 3-year campaign to stop the British Government giving billions in taxpayer’s money to fossil fuel projects overseas. He is now the UK Campaign Lead for Market Forces, an organisation that stops banks from funding projects that harm the environment. We spoke about the right to protest, why it is important, the #killthebill protests and whether violence is ever an acceptable form of protest!
