Bill Resnick interviews Stephen Zunes about stopping ambitious or desperate autocrats and dictators from stealing elections. They discuss how civil resistance through non-violent but powerful and determined mass movements that disobey orders and do not permit business as usual have triumphed around the world. They also discuss that non-violence is not passivity, and that sizable marches can disable violent provocateurs. Stephen Zunes is a Professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of San Francisco.
