IF YOU DON"T LIKE IT…START A REVOLUTION!
There are many ways to start a revolution, but not all are successful. After reading, you will be able to create your own revolution, the right way. Change doesn't happen overnight. For example,the American Revolution took eight years before we finally gained our independence. Revolutions are all about showing up. Without protesting and getting your word out, your revolution will never make it. You have to put in the effort. The people in the street need to own the narrative. In other words, you need to spread your word as much as possible to let the whole world know you are the ones in power. You are the voice of the revolution.
BE LIKE TANK MAN!
Tank man stood up to tyranny that China was trying to exert on the Chinese people in Tiananmen Square. Tank man stood directly in front of a column of type 59 tanks with a shopping bag in either hand blocking their movement towards the group of protesters. When the tanks tried to move, he would move Tank man climbed up on top of the front tank trying to open the hatch to the inside but they were locked. He was later pulled away by PSB members. This shows how he stood up for what he believes in despite the numerous tanks in front of him. To start a revolution. you need to believe in your cause and be willing to put your life on the line.
Pioneers of Movements
Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr.
President George Washington
This was said by Ahmed Hassan, one of the protesters from Tahrir Square. If you want to know the real story about a revolution, ask the revolutionists. Never go to the government or other officials for your information. They won't ever tell you the truth. You have to listen to the people on the ground.
