Launched by David Shoebridge

Locked On! The Seventh and Most Illegal in the Hitch-hiker’s Guide Trilogy

Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way of resisting invasions and dictatorships than taking up arms? Pondered the possibilities of people power? Wondered what it’s like when someone feels so strongly about an issue that they’ll deliberately break the law and go to jail for it?

This novel, based on real-life environmental blockades at Maules Creek, Bentley and elsewhere – but set within a humorous sci-fi universe – takes you on a journey to the centre of nonviolent civil disobedience by an author who has been there repeatedly over three and a half decades, and researched it extensively. In a world plagued by wars and major problems such as global warming, its insights into the potential of nonviolence and environmental action bring hope and inspiration.
