Our models are the “Velvet Revolution” in the former Czechslovakia, and the other nonviolent “People Power” revolutions. With vision and determination, the people around the world are nonviolently transforming their societies and positively defeating their obsolete governments, including the world’s second largest super-power.
It’s now our turn.
The Next Step: There have been many successful models of nonviolent, inclusive societal transformation, including:
- Gandhi: Freedom from British colonialism
- King: “The Civil Rights Movement”: Freedom from American Apartheid
- Havel: “The Velvet Revolution”: Freedom in Czechoslovakia from Soviet domination
- Mandela: Freedom from South African Apartheid
Each of these leaders indicated that their revolution was just the first step in a multi-step process.
