Abstract From Tahir Square to Hong Kong, Occupy Wall Street to Anonymous, we have seen a surge in grassroots and social media activism. Yet the army is in power in Cairo and bankers continue to draw their bonuses. Is activism a failed strategy? Are political parties the only way to drive change or will student and street activism surprise us yet? The Panel Political campaigner Peter Tatchell, research director at Demos Carl Miller and Telegraph columnist Dan Hodges contest the best ways to bring about change.
