NEW: ERICA CHENOWETH-Non-Violent Protests On the March – Why They WorkWritten on August 10th, 2019
June 25th NYTimes headline: “2019 might be the year of the protest” – mass demonstrations in Prague, Hong Kong, Russia, Kazakhstan, and the UK. The President of Algeria, the President of Sudan, and Governor of Puerto Rico leave office after protests. What’s going on? Why are nonviolent protests working?
