David Hartsough
Screening and discussion: "How to Start a Revolution"
-- a film on the work of Gene Sharp

Any power structure relies upon the People's obedience to the orders of the ruler(s).

If the People do not obey, rulers have no power.

Gene Sharp is known for his extensive writings on nonviolent struggle, which have influenced numerous anti-government resistance movements around the world. In 1953-54, Sharp was jailed for nine months after protesting the conscription of soldiers for the Korean War, and wrote and organized throughout his entire life. In 1983 he founded the Albert Einstein Institution, devoted to studies and promotion of the use of nonviolent action in conflicts worldwide.

Feature documentary "How to Start a Revolution" (2011) about the global influence of Sharp's work has been described as the unofficial film of the Occupy Wall Street movement, shown in Occupy camps in cities all over the world.

David Hartsough, longtime friend of OccupyForum, will lead a discussion on the film and Gene Sharp's work. From his time with Martin Luther King in Montgomery Alabama to his life-long work in peacemaking -- including in the Soviet Union, Kosovo, Berlin, Cuba, Nicaragua, Palestine and Israel and Iran -- Hartsough has spent his life working for peace and justice. Co-founder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce. David has helped initiate a Global Movement to End All War. He has just returned from a peacemaking trip to Korea and Vietnam. His book, Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist, comes out in September. He is the Director of PEACEWORKERS San Francisco.
