In the last of a three-part series on the effectiveness of the politics of protest, the Alex Salmond Show features the recent marches for Scottish independence and asks whether peaceful action gets results in the modern world. Alex also interviews veteran campaigner for LGBT and human rights Peter Tatchell on the highlights of his 40 years of championing these causes and asks celebrated American activist Medea Benjamin to put the current international wave of political activism into a historical context.
