198 Methods of Protest and Persuasion

Tim Bolger et al speak on ideas advanced by Gene Sharp, who says that: and "Nonviolent action empowers population groups by giving them the means to resist oppression and injustice.  While nonviolent forms of struggle do not kill, injure, or destroy, they undermine an opponent’s social, economic, political, and military power by withholding and withdrawing the pillars of support required by an adversary to maintain its position and to achieve its goals.  Rejection of a regime’s legitimacy may weaken and destroy the loyalty and obedience of the population.  Economic boycotts and strikes can disrupt a regime’s economic power.  Political noncooperation may nullify oppressive government policies. Disaffection and mutiny of troops facing nonviolent resisters can limit a regime’s military might."  
Program will include a short video.
