Truth to Power banner by Ed Hall

Over 4 nights 24 Londoner’s of all ages and backgrounds respond to the question:

WHO HAS POWER OVER YOU AND WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY TO THEM?

Speaking truth to power has its origins in anti-war pacifism, and is widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or position of trust don’t want to hear.

Is what they have to say an act of love, or act of war, will it bring us together or tear us apart? Is it to their parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, religious leader, boss, banker or simply their best friend, – it’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.
