Dr. Erica Chenoweth - Why Civil Resistance Works - YouTube

http://www.youtube.com

Dr. Erica Chenoweth, Assistant Professor of Government at Wesleyan University looks at the strategic advantage of nonviolent struggle and civil resistance. Armed insurgency may have triumphed in the Algerian war of independence, the Chinese Revolution, and the anti-Soviet war in Afghanistan. These cases, among others, have convinced many observers that violent insurgency is likely to succeed. Moreover, insurgents often claim that they turn to violence as a last resort, having exhausted all other methods of seeking redress for their grievances.

Man Jailed For Shingling His Own Roof

http://www.keyc.tv

It all started when Espey decided to re–shingle his roof after discovering a leak.

Espey says, "The building inspector came along and told me I couldn't do it. He told me I had to quit and take off the shingles and start over because they have a code. I was kind of getting disturbed a little bit, somebody telling me what I can do on my home."

Nevertheless, on March of last year he was found guilty of four counts of violating building code and two counts of violating a stop work order, fined over $2000 and sentenced to 90 days in jail, 60 with good behavior.

8 Reasons Young Americans Don't Fight Back

http://www.alternet.org

How the US Crushed Youth Resistance: Traditionally, young people have energized democratic movements. So it is a major coup for the ruling elite to have created societal institutions that have subdued young Americans and broken their spirit of resistance to domination. Young Americans—even more so than older Americans—appear to have acquiesced to the idea that the corporatocracy can completely screw them and that they are helpless to do anything about it.

Until July 1, a low-income New Hampshire woman paid an average of $5 to fill a birth control pill prescription at any of the state's six Planned Parenthood clinics. She might have even gotten the birth control for free, depending on her poverty level.

Gestapo police tactics continued to be used in Orlando

http://orlandocopwatch.com

The outrageous of this whole situation continues. In the month of June 2011 alone, 26 peaceful people have been arrested at an approximate cost of $3000 per person per arrest to the tax payers of Orlando. Not including the cost of actually trying these people in court and the time of jurors. But since it’s not the OPD’s money, it yours, this is how they feel best to spend their time and your money.

Small egg producers in PEI are getting squeezed.

http://peicanada.com

A health food store in PEI Canada is getting leaned on for selling non government approved eggs. This is part of a campaign to put small producers out of business. Last year a B&B was leaned on for serving non-graded eggs to customers. And shortly before that there was a move afoot to change the size of flocks that would fall under health regulations, from 300 to 50.

The health food store proprietors have chosen disobedience by selling the cartons and giving the eggs away for free. It takes guts to do something like this in a region where government spends 62% of gdp.
