Based on face-to-face "jam sessions" held in Yangon, Amman, Harare, Dhaka, Kampala and Oaxaca, Beautiful Rising includes stories of the Ugandan organizers who smuggled two yellow-painted pigs into parliament to protest corruption; the Burmese students' 360-mile long march against undemocratic and overly centralized education reforms; the Lebanese "honk at parliament" campaign against politicians who had clung to power long after their term had expired; and much more.
Now, in one remarkable book, you can find the collective wisdom of more than a hundred grassroots organizers from five continents. It's everything you need for a DIY uprising of your own.
