How To Start A Revolution
“Dictators are never as strong as they tell you they are.
People are never as weak as they think they are.”
Gene Sharp, author of “From Dictatorship to Democracy.”
According to Gene Sharp, “Dictatorships depend on the consent of the people. Once their vulnerability is exposed, their power can be systemically eroded.” Sharp’s Albert Einstein Institution’s stated mission is to advance “the study and use of strategic nonviolent action in conflicts throughout the world.” This documentary, “How to Start a Revolution,” highlights examples of several countries where this approach has succeeded.
Hosted by the Social Action & Solidarity Committee (SAS) of the IWW
