American activist Jamila Raqib describes her work with the Albert Einstein Institute and its founder, Gene Sharp, one of the world’s foremost experts on nonviolent struggle and resistance. The non-violent resistance demonstrated by Norwegian teachers during Nazi occupation led Sharp to start cataloguing various non-violent methods for use by future movements. Since then, activists around the world have employed these methods in their own struggles. Raqib reminds us that while non-violent methods are not easy, they are powerful and effective, and continue to improve everyday.
