New Case studyes, West Papua, Egpt And Russia

Movements.org contributor Matt Mulberry has authored three new case studies: "Oleg Koslovski and pro-Democracy Activism in Russia", "Herman Wainggai and activism in West Papua", and "Ahmed Salah and the Egyptian Revolution". All three case studies are based on interviews done by Matt and his colleagues at the International Center on Non-Violent Conflict.

Oleg Koslovski and pro-Democracy Activism in Russia

Oleg Koslovski was interviewed by the International Center on Non-violent Conflict, as part of a series entitled On the Ground Interviews: Conversations with Organizers and Activists. Oleg Koslovski is a Russian pro-democracy activist and blogger. He is also currently working on his PhD at Moscow State University examining the use of nonviolent resistance within political conflicts. As one of the founders of the Solidarity Democratic Movement in Russia he has been very active in youth movements such as Oborona. Meaning “defense” in Russian, Oborona uses civil resistance tactics to slow the steady encroachment of authoritarianism as it becomes more and more visible across Russia’s political landscape. Oleg writes about many of these issues in his blog olegkozlovsky.wordpress.com as well as in many international publications. READ THE FULL CASE STUDY....

Herman Wainggai and Activism in West Papua

Herman Wainggai is a West Papuan educator and organizer who has dedicated his life to his homeland's self determination movement. In January 2006 Herman was granted political asylum in Australia after he and 45 other West Papuans escaped the island, crossing the Arafura Sea in a traditional double-outrigger canoe. Since then he’s been able to take on a new role as an advocate for West Papuan liberation by raising international awareness of the struggle. READ THE FULL CASE STUDY...
