EVERYDAY REBELLION by The Riahi Brothers
What does the Occupy movement have in common with the Spanish Indignados or the Arab Spring? Is there a connection between
the Iranian democracy movement and the Syrian struggle and what is the link between the Ukrainian topless activists of Femen
and Egypt? The reasons for the various uprisings in these countries may be diverse, but their creative nonviolent tactics
they are strongly connected. Everyday Rebellion is a documentary & cross-media project celebrating the power and richness
of creative nonviolent protest and civil disobedience worldwide.

decades. But he sees a completely different question: Who or what is driving this catastrophic vision?
