This is the ninth interview from a 2018 series by Caroline Kraabel, initially broadcast on London's art radio station, Resonance 104.4 FM. Activist, author and journalist Paul Mason (Clear Bright Future: a Radical Defence of the Human Being) talks about the uses and limitations of improvisation in activism and politics.


Spontaneity and improvisation isn't just randomness. Whenever power does something, we know that there's a set response that they're expecting – but then you can go, 'OK, what WOULDN'T they expect?'
