The Roots Of Egypt’s Pro-Democracy Movement

I’m finally reading Bruce Watson’s fantastic ‘Freedom Summer‘ – so this half hour piece from Al Jazeera was especially relevant. This human portrayal of the young people who from the April 6th Youth Movement – so instrumental in organising the protests – is educational and inspiring.
There are lots of evident lessons learnt from the great work of Gene Sharp, the nonviolence strategist, and Srdja Popovic – one of the leaders of Otpor, the youth movement that brought down Slobodan Milosevic in 2000.
The keys to success;
