Ghandi knew it all along and now it’s scientifically been proven: non-violent protest is more effective than violent protest. Citizens across the world are rising up in creative forms of solidarity. From the Occupy movement to the Spanish ‘Indignados’ to the Arab Spring and from Iran to Syria to the Ukraine, everyday people are expressing themselves through nudity, performance, silence, sound, creation and community. Showing us the infinite possibilities of people power in the imagination of a better world.
