<a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/172444007/how-to-start-a-revolution-a-new-documentary-film/widget/video.html“>

18 months ago we started work on this feature-length documentary. Through the candid and intimate testimony of the people responsible for non-violent revolutions our film seeks to tell the story of how people power can be used topple dictators.

To make this film our director (Ruaridh Arrow pictured left) slept overnight in Tahrir Square in Cairo at the height of the February revolution. He’s met the leaders of the Syrian pro-democracy movement and the people responsible for overthrowing dictators in Serbia and Ukraine. He has spent time with Gene and his colleagues as they spread their message of effective non-violent revolution.

The film reveals how the leaders of an uprising in one country train the participants in the next and how social media now threatens dictators and tyrants around the world in ways that were unimaginable just a decade ago.

Not only is this documentary an important film of record of the civil uprisings that have shaken the world in the last decade but we also hope it will help inspire future pro-democracy movements develop their strategies for non-violent revolution in the face of apparently overwhelming odds.


A documentary following the life and work of revolutionary academic Gene Sharp who wrote “From Dictatorship to Democracy” the book used to topple dictatorships all over the world.

HOW TO START A REVOLUTION is a new documentary film revealing how one man’s work has helped millions of people achieve freedom in the face of oppression and tyranny.

Gene Sharp is a shy, modest and little-known man. But his work has inspired a generation of people to challenge dictators through non-violent action in a tidal wave of revolutionary spirit and reform that has swept from Eastern Europe, though Asia and to the Middle East and North Africa.

This is your host Michael Feltz for today's segment.

This past July marked the 11th year of persecution against the spiritual movement, Falun Gong, perpetrated by the Chinese Communist Regime in mainland China.

During this time, tens of millions of non-violent Falun Gong practitioners have had their lives impacted by the negativity and brutal force administered by the Communist Regime.

Around the world, Falun Gong practitioners outside of the mainland have labored tirelessly to clarify the truth to the various levels of society through grassroots means and peaceful efforts, and their actions have not gone unheard.

One such activity was a rally to protest the persecution held in Chicago on July 17th and was attended by some Falun Gong practitioners whose direct experience has included surviving the violence in China.

Brin Drove Google to Pull Back in China
By JESSICA E. VASCELLARO for Technology of Wall Street Journal
March 24, 2010

Google Inc. co-founder Sergey Brin pushed the Internet giant to take the risky step of abandoning its China-based search engine as that country’s efforts to censor the Web and suppress dissidents smacked of the “totalitarianism” of his youth in the Soviet Union.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Brin, who came to the U.S. from Russia at the age of 6 in 1979, said the compromises to do business in the world’s largest Internet market had become too great. Finally, a cyberattack that the company traced to Chinese hackers, which stole some of Google’s proprietary computer code and attempted to spy on Chinese activists’ emails, was the “straw that broke the camel’s back.”

This is Catherine Hennessy reporting A Decade of Courage for Sound of Hope Radio Network.

The 20th day of July, 2009, is the ten-year anniversary of when the Chinese Communist Party (the CCP) began its suppression of the spiritual practice of Falun Dafa also known as Falun Gong by Physical torture and mental torture to force Falun Gong adherents to give up their beliefs. Just the opposite, not only the adherents are affirmative on their beliefs but also survived the CCP’s brutal religious persecution. Following is the recording of Peter and his translator taken at A Decade of Courage Rally. Peter, a courageous Falun Gong practitioner, and his memoir of how he was kidnapped, imprisoned, tortured, sleep deprived, forced feeding, forced slave laboring, brainwashing re-education, has revealed the true nature of the CCP. In order to protect Peter’s family from being harrassed by the Chinese policemen back home we do not announce Peter’s Chinese name. We are glad that he made his way to the religious freedom country, the United States, and now he can practice his beliefs with peace of mind. Here is Peter and his translator:

In 1992 in China the world first heard of Falun Gong, a peaceful meditation system based on Truthfulness, Compassion, and tolerance. Faun Gong dramatically improves one’s health and character.
