A quick look at the work of CANVAS

    In this new video, Voice of America takes a look at the inspiring work of our good friends at the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS) in Belgrade. In the segment, Srdja Popovic—who we’ve interviewed numerous times on this site, including here—talks about what the Egyptians did right, the keys to success of nonviolent struggle, and reiterates the point that I stressed in my last post: “Removing the bad guy is sometimes easier than building the democratic institutions.”
