Revolution Guidebook Project (Jordan Meriwether)

In our we learn much about the different protest happening now and in the past. A were able to see the progression of a revolution happen right in front of us due to there being a revolt in Ukraine, this gave us a very vivid image of how a these things are dealt with today. We also looked through a book called ‘198 Methods of Nonviolent Action’ which discusses different forms of protest very specifically.

Throughout my project I studied the changes throughout history of the treatment of the protestors and if they were treated any better throughout history. I mainly look at the Revolutionary war and the civil rights movement since they represent very different views of how protests should be handled. Once I had compared them all to this time I noticed extreme changes  in violence towards protesters as time became more recent. Now I understand the issues and risk of a protest in those separate times.
