Civil disobedience deliberately breaks rules in order to protest against prevailing law – and, with a bit of luck, to bring about a (more) moral society.

This is the subject of a series of articles (for the Compendium in the month of February 2023) at Qiio Magazine.
And I was happy to contribute 6 illustrations for important historical events and the five articles themselves.
