There's a riot goin' on

WE ARE THE GIANT puts the Arab Spring into a history of resistance. Strategies have ranged from Gandhi's peaceful protest to Che Guevara's armed revolutions. To what extent is it legitimate and strategically advisable to apply violence in resistance against dictators? Introducing inspiring and courageous rebels, the renowned film maker Greg Barker follows armed rebels in Libya, both armed and peaceful Syrian dissidents, as well as the non-violent Bahraini protestors who were the recipients of last year's Rafto Award.
