Storyline

HOW TO START A REVOLUTION is the remarkable untold story of Nobel Peace Prize nominee Gene Sharp, the world's leading expert on non-violent revolution. This new film (from first time director Ruaridh Arrow) reveals how Gene's work has given a new generation of revolutionary leaders the weapons needed to overthrow dictators. It shows how his 198 steps to non-violent regime change have inspired uprisings from Serbia to Ukraine and from Egypt to Syria and how his work has spread across the globe in an unstoppable wave of profound democratic change. How To Start A Revolution is the story of the power of people to change their world, the modern revolution and the man behind it all. Written by Anonymous

The works and thoughts of a non-violent revolutions visionary
30 January 2012 | by balpomoreliSee all my reviews

Or why is important to keep fighting without violence to get a healthy people's revolution.

This is a great and not well known documentary of the works and opinions of a man who shows once again that ideas have repercussions. Gene Sharp has influenced pacific revolutions all around the globe and will keep guiding them with their revolutionary manuals to go from dictatorship to democracies. Or from tyrannies to people's governments. The documentary goes quite well trough the passed revolutions influenced by Gene and some of the leaders of it. It shows basically that people have power, even in the worst regimes, and this is priceless.

I warn you, watching and getting to know this could be extremely helpful for the people in your country.
