There are many roots of the Egyptian revolution. But one of the most unlikely goes back to an East Boston rowhouse, where an 83-year-old named Gene Sharp runs a shoestring operation called the Albert Einstein Institution—and arguably just changed the course of history.

Also after the ousting of Slobodan Milosevic a workshop was set-up in Belgrade where a paid revolutionary group called Otpor began training different cells in the art of Non_Violent Resistance.

Now 12 years later Otpor has a new name,CANVAS or Center for Strategy of Non-Violent Resistance.

Canvas which is an NGO works and operates independently from any government with affiliations in the Albert Einstein Institute,TUFT,Colorado College,Grinnell College,Rutgers College,King's College,Marquette University,BFPC,BFOS,Georg e Mason University,USIP,Freedom House,IRI,New Tactics,Humanity in Action.
All of the links above can be found at CANVAS homepage under external links.

A central figure in this movement is Srdja Popovic a member of the Parliament in the Serb Republic in late 2000 where he also served as environmental affairs advisor to the Serbian Prime Minister, Zoran Dindic until Dindic's assassination in March 2003. He left the Parliament in late 2003 and co-founded the Center for Applied Non-Violent Actions and Strategies (CANVAS), a group that supports nonviolent democratic movements through the transfer of knowledge on strategies and tactics of nonviolent struggle.

Also if you haven't watched the video in my last post I would suggest you do for an in-depth look into Otpor and CANVAS...Also if you are not familiar with Gene Sharp he will be mentioned in the video above by Otpor and will speak himself.Here is a link to the book used by Otpor and CANVAS authored by Gene Sharp titled:From Dictatorship to Democracy.(See Source Below)

Here is another book which outlines NVR:

Gene Sharp’s “mechanisms of change” (1973) form an important part of NVR theory.They describe what happens to the opponents (be it an oppressive regime or an external occupier) in
the course of a nonviolent struggle, and the nature of their decision to give power away.

BREAKING: Zuccotti Park Will Evict Occupy Wall Street Tomorrow.

The owners of Zuccotti Park, where Occupy Wall Street has made its camp for nearly a month, released a set of rules today that appear intended to evict the protesters permanently. The rules ban camping in the park or lying down on sleeping bags or under tarps. (A copy of the notice is posted below but is loading slowly so give it an extra few seconds.) Along with the release, park owners Brookfield Office Properties announced plans to begin cleaning the park in three stages starting a 7 a.m. tomorrow—effectively a notice to protesters that they need to be gone by then or face the consequences. A spokesperson for the company did not immediately return a call for comment. I will be tweeting continuously from Zuccotti Park starting this evening, sleeping there tonight, and covering the eviction in detail tomorrow.

Looks like their staying..

That, in two words chanted and rechanted through the crowd, is how the news sank in early this morning that Occupy Wall Street would emerge from a harrowing night still fully in control of Zuccotti Park. At around 6:30 a.m., a half hour before an eviction operation was expected to begin, New York City Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway called it off. The owner of the park, Brookfield Office Properties, had withdrawn its request for police assistance. "Our position has been consistent throughout: the city's role is to protect public health and safety, to enforce the law, and guarantee the rights of all New Yorkers," Holloway said in a statement. "Brookfield believes they can work out an arrangement with the protesters that will ensure the park remains clean, safe, available for public use, and that the situation is respectful of residences and businesses downtown."

I believe this one can be added to the list of countries using NVResistance/Revolution strategies.If you look at the " 2011 Egyptian Revolution," the uprising was mainly a campaign of non-violent civil resistance,demonstrations and acts of civil disobedience.

The " Libyan Civil War " took place following a popular uprising that began on Tuesday, 25 January 2011 and is still continuing as of October 2011.Both strategies of engagement used civil unrest and NVR approach.

House Majority Appropriations Bill Attacks the Other 99 Percent

Bill Guts Health, Education, and Workplace Support for Middle Class, Preserves Protections for top 1 Percent


Conservatives in Congress last week quietly issued another sweeping attack on health, education, and workplace support for middle-class Americans—while preserving protections for the privileged top 1 percent. The conservative assault on the other 99 percent was buried in 150 pages of legislation drafted within the Republican-controlled House Appropriations Committee.

At a time when unemployment is near record levels and middle-class incomes stagnate, the bill seeks to eliminate funding for job training and gut basic protections for workers that help ensure they are paid what they are owed. It would slash Pell Grant funding and protects the interests of big businesses by letting colleges (particularly for-profit ones) off the hook for their students’ poor outcomes. And with U.S. poverty rates at a 17-year high, the legislation would slash energy assistance for the vulnerable. It also seeks to overturn policies that ensure all Americans have access to health care.

House Budget Bill Guts Worker Protections


The House majority just released a draft budget bill that significantly ups the ante in what has become an unmitigated attack on working Americans. Basic rights to a safe workplace, pay for hours worked, and the ability to join with coworkers in a union are at risk because the bill—which provides fiscal year 2012 funding for the Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board, as well as several other agencies—would prohibit the enforcement of a wide range of worker protections.

Bill Cuts Funding and Eliminates Regulations


Last week, House Republicans released a 2012 appropriations bill that would determine the funding for the Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services. The bill serves up a double whammy against low-income students: it cuts funding for financial aid and also eliminates the regulations that would make sure colleges give these students what they paid for.

House Republicans Eliminate Funding for Job Training


House Republican leaders unveiled on September 29 their second attempt to eliminate funding for job-training programs. Their first attempt didn’t work, so this time they’re trying through the back door.

The House Appropriations Committee posted a draft of its fiscal year 2012 appropriations bill for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education. The bill would cut more than $2.2 billion from employment and job-training programs in FY 2012. But this massive cut is the first in a multistep process to hollow out the workforce development system so that the full elimination of federal job-training programs becomes easier over the next two years.

House Bill Costs More Than It Saves by Cutting Health Care


House Republicans recently released their funding bill for health programs for fiscal year 2012. Once again, House leadership is using the threat of a government shutdown to relitigate health reform and abusing the appropriations process to undo policies that were already enacted.

Infographic: House Appropriations Bill Ignores the Other 99 Percent


Last week House Republican leaders released draft legislation that slashes federal funding for core education, health, human services, and labor programs while ignoring better choices for balancing the federal budget including ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and highly profitable companies. These proposed cuts demonstrate that the House leadership is ignoring the Occupy Wall Street protests giving voice to the 99 percent of Americans fed up with federal policies that protect tax laws benefiting the wealthiest while sacrificing programs that help the middle class and poor.

The Repubs do it.

The Dems do it.

The 111th Congress killed the majority of Americans with legislation that put a negative impact on just about everybody except a few targeted groups, and those have not benefitted all that much.

I think they are setting up for a Value Added Tax and as many other taxes.

Jan 2013 will be the worst tax increase in history.

The administrators and contractors get rich.

No fault of the OP, but I find it a egocentric to refer to the movement as OWS. OWS is part of a movement that was born in Tunisia by a flame lit by Wikileaks... This is now worldwide with over one thousand occupations. It is a beautiful thing to see. We truly are living through amazing times..

Occupy OKC protester was found dead

“The Poet was found dead in his tent at Kerr Park earlier this afternoon by other participants,” they wrote. “Police and emergency personnel were immediately contacted. Occupy OKC is withholding information concerning The Poet’s identity pending notification of his family by authorities.”


Oklahoma City police Capt. Dexter Nelson said that although the man appeared to be in his 20s, the death was not suspicious.

In a video posted to Facebook, Street Poet explained that he had been “traveling the road on foot doing poetry” since his dad kicked him out at the age of 16 or 17. Another video posted to Google Plus shows the man performing poetry.
