"Trenton Oldfield was sentenced to six months imprisonment at HM Wormwood Scrubs for a peaceful direct action protest at the Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race," said the publishers. "His aim was to draw attention to the unjust inequalities in British society being severely exacerbated by government cuts and a culture of elitism."
