2011 was a year of extraordinary people-powered resistance, starting with the ‘Arab Spring’ and spreading across many parts of the world. How did this resistance work so well? In this 11 minute piece, Srdja Popovic (who led the nonviolent movement that took down Milosevic in Serbia in 2000) analyses the plans, skills and tools each movement needs – from nonviolent tactics to a sense of humour. Another talk from the TED stable!
