Across the world, nonviolent movements are at the forefront of resistance against repression, imperial aggression and corporateabuse. However, it is often difficult for activists in other countries to know how best to assist such movements.
The contributors to People Power place nonviolent struggles in an internationalcontext where solidarity can play a crucial role. Yet they also warn that good intentions are not enough, solidarity has to listen to local movements.
Examining movements from Zimbabwe to Burma and Palestine, the contributors assess various forms ofsolidarity, arguing that a central role of solidarity is to strengthen the counter-power of those resisting domination and oppression.
