From America Abroad: All across the world people are using nonviolent resistance to tackle corruption, to challenge their governments, and to protect their lands and their culture. The strategies for a successful movement have evolved since the days of Gandhi, but at its heart civil resistance harnesses the power of many to oppose those in power.

On this episode of America Abroad we travel to from Latin America to Africa to Southeast Asia to see what’s happening on the ground and gain perspectives from successful movements in the past seeking to answer where this strategy works and how it works best. Anchored by Madeleine Brand.
