We have decided to keep the task nice and straight-forward...but don't be fooled! It's trickier than it looks.

Your challenge this week is to sum up your learning from the the Issue in ten words or less.

You could explain what protest is, choose a favourite fact OR even tell us how your opinions have changed since the start of the topic.

The best entries will be clear, to the point and of course... no more than ten words!

Choose one of these sentence starters if you need some help to get going:
