What's worth protesting about? Make a stand in this week's coffee break exercise

Whether it's climate change, #MeToo, soclal justice, human rights or opposing Brexit, everyone has something they believe in standing up for. For five minutes, scribble down five things that would make you take to the streets in protest.

For the next ten minutes, write a poem or a piece of flash fiction relating to what you'd protest about.
