If you are in New York City on Thursday, come check out the launch of Revolutionaries Live—a speaker series hosted by the Yes Lab at New York University. Ivan Marovic (pictured above as a battering ram) will be kicking things off with a talk on the role of humor and creative activism, drawing on his experience forming the Serbian student movement Otpor (that played a critical role in the overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic in 2000) and his more recent work as a consultant and nonviolence trainer for pro-democracy groups around the world. I will be there to introduce Ivan and am really looking forward to the event, especially since afterward we will take the subway down to Liberty Plaza and join with those occupying Wall Street.
