Stages for Social Movements

We need a political strategy that is at the same time a community strategy, one that says “yes” to creative innovation in the here and now and links today’s creativity to the new society that lies beyond a power shift. With the help and feedback of many activists from a number of countries I’ve created a strategic framework that aims to support today’s activists, something like the way Otpur (Serbia) activists were supported by their strategy. I call it strategy for a living revolution.

The strategy not only encourages creating new tactics and more boldness in using the best of the old, but it also helpsactivists sort out which tactics will be most effective. Finally, the strategy brings in the dimension of time. It suggests that some tactics that are ineffective at one moment will be just right at another. It offers an organic, developmental framework of stages over time.
