How to Stand Up to a Dictator — Signed copy
Maria Ressa

Non-member price: £12.50 + postage
Member price: £10 + postage

Maria Ressa has spent decades speaking truth to power. But her work tracking disinformation networks seeded by her own government, spreading lies to its own citizens laced with anger and hate, has landed her in trouble with the most powerful man in the country: President Duterte.

Now, hounded by the state, she has multiple arrest warrants against her name, and a potential 100+ years behind bars to prepare for – while she stands trial for speaking the truth.

Told from the frontline of the digital war, this is Maria Ressa’s urgent cry for us to wake up and hold the line, before it is too late.

A personal hero of mine … she’s an important warning for the rest of us Hillary Clinton
