FREE DOWNLOAD This Is an Uprising DOWNLOAD Ü This Is an Uprising FREE READ ë MIAMIMOTELS.US ´ Mark Engler There is a craft to uprising and this craft can change the world From protests around climate change and immigrant rights to Occupy the Arab Spring and #BlackLivesMatter a new generation is unleashing strategic nonviolent action to shape public debate and force political change When mass movements erupt onto our television screens the media consistently portrays them as being spontaneous and unpredictable Yet in this book M. I figure with the human race facing its possible end in this very century that hopelessness may not be a productive emotion I mean I completely understand despair and paralyzing fear and blind hedonistic escapism been there but days of productive disruption against the corporate state may be a better use of my time And not alone but with others preferably for instance my largely individualistic pacifist stance has done little in recent years to stop endless international war I ve noticed So I figured that this old lefty may have to brush up on his non violence strategies in this coming months There s been increased noise internationally in the past 2 3 years people taking things to the streets people not merely giving up so in spite of my having recently read convincingly scary books such as Six Degrees by Mark Lynas and Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace Wells I felt I needed to get over my own fear and inertia and take a look at this book as a kind of inspiration on how to get back out there In the United States we are often told that the way to create change is through voting and through lobbying elected officials This Is An Uprising suggests that nonviolent civil resistance can also be very useful in creating the conditions for necessary social change Nonviolence is usually regarded as a philosophy or moral code the Englers write in the book s introduction Much less freuently is it studied as a method of political conflict disruption and escalation which is in fact what they doThis Is An Uprising is a short history and guide to non violent civil disobedience So yes voting is key writing letters and signing petitions is important sure Education matters is crucial of course we have to know there s a problem before we can act on it Community organizing and slowly creating a foundation for coalition building and structures for change ala Saul Alinsky s Rules for Radicals for instance is also vitally important the Englers identify a few movements than made a lot of noise but failed to prepare for What Next but it has to work hand in hand with troublemaking disruption getting media attention enroute to garnering large scale public sympathy for and commitment to a cause The Englers examine several well known historical events for their success and they also look at some violent protests for their failures church bombings Planned Parenthood bombings smashing windows at the WTO Seattle and so onThey take a close look at where non violence has worked from Gandhi s Salt March to King s Birmingham actions as part of the civil rights movement of the sixties the ouster of Slobodan Milosevic in Serbia and the successful living wage campaign at Harvard University They cite Erica Chenoweth and Maria Stephan who created an extensive database of social movements worldwide and discovered that nonviolent movements were twice as likely to succeed as violent insurgencies Digging deeper Chenoweth also uncovered what she called the 35 percent rule A campaign was practically guaranteed to succeed if 35 percent of the population actively took part Many campaigns won with much less supportThis is very hopeful to me and reminds me that most people were not on the streets during protests against the Vietnam War though most say now they were opposed to it and say they realized it was a very bad idea It took a few thousand people to make a lots of noiseAnd nonviolent protest if it is to succeed is always disruptive and polarizing The Englers cite ACT UP and the young undocumented immigrant DREAMers as examples of militant groups who through both extreme sacrifice and disruption forced change when the odds against their campaigns were longThis was a very popular book two years ago when it came out but I see sales are steady so I m not alone in wanting to be part of a mass mobilization as it is a time for action and this is a good book to help you think what you may be able to do and howAnd in the process keep my heart in the right place and sense of humor and as someone wise once said I don t want to be part of any revolution where I can t dance okay it was Emma Goldman bless her heartTakin It to the Streets Doobie BrothersMichael McDonald Change rally LA

I thought this was an excellent book I had actually never heard of it until a member of the Sunrise Movement recommended it to me and much of the ideas and strategies discussed are what Sunrise is doing to fight inaction on the climate crisis Like many others before I read the book I appreciated the idea of nonviolent action in principle but didn t really feel it accomplished much other than maybe some small incremental change even the civil rights movement gained attention only after violence from Bull Connor and the police in Birmingham for example But this book does a great and detailed job explaining not only why nonviolence is obviously the moral path but the effective one too and with real world examples both current and historical My only complaint about it is that it could be repetitive at times which was good for driving points home but I think the authorseditors could have tightened up some of the points which would make the book slightly shorterThis book is a great guide and blueprint both for movements trying to create change and for those who are trying to understand how that change can be made in our ever changing world Highly recommended
