What is a dilemma action?

    In this short video put together by students and professors at the 2011 Narco News School of Authentic Journalism, Ivan Marovic, who was one of the leaders of Otpor, the nonviolent student-led movement that helped topple Slobodan Milosevic in 2000, explains what a “dilemma action” is and how they used this tactic to great effect in their struggle.

    To learn more about not only the creativity and humor that went into the young Serbs’ nonviolent actions, but the brilliant strategic planning that led to the movement’s eventual success, I’d recommend checking out Tina Rosenberg’s new book Join the Club.
