How can you use creative tactics to resist tyranny and oppression in whatever form they take? To figure that out, there's no better way than to get acquainted with what others have done.
Then there are books:
- The Path of Most Resistance: A great resource for planning campaigns by Ivan Marovic, one of the founders of Otpor (that helped overthrow Milosevic in 2000) and CANVAS (that went around counseling other movements in how to do it). (Here's a webinar in which Ivan talks about the book.)
- Blueprint for Revolution: A more narrative book by Srdja Popovic, another Otpor founder.
- This is an Uprising (the Englers): a website as well as a book, full of thought-provoking articles!
- How We Win: If anyone knows, it's George Lakey, who's been a guiding light of non-violent resistance since the Civil Rights struggle. (Here's a webinar in which George talks about the book.)
Finally, we Yes people have a “Book of Tricks” that tries to give away all our secrets. It's far from complete, but there's a lot in there.
We also have an elaborate "mindmap" of how we think creative activism can work to make change—if you're interested drop us a line and we'll send it to you!
