Summary of The Secret to Effective Non-Violent Resistance
Nonviolent resistance can prevail where war and aggression cannot.
In early 2017, the Women’s March in Washington, DC, and its sister marches in cities worldwide drew millions of participants. Subsequently, protestors and organizers wondered how to take the movement to the next level. Peacemaker Jamila Raqib answers exactly this question as she explains how to turn a march into a movement. Her lecture is as focused, well-paced and powerful as you would expect from an expert in organized action. If you’ve ever wanted to further a cause, getAbstract recommends Raqib’s pithy talk to you.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why street protests alone don’t produce meaningful change,
- How to mount a resistance movement peacefully and effectively, and
- How “nonviolent action” can succeed where violence fails.
