When it comes to nonviolent protests, we often see the police dresses as gladiators and the protesters dressed in Birkenstock sandals. Is it right to expect to receive violence in return for standing up for your rights? On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri discuss both history and modern day examples of what happens when people decide to stand up for themselves.

Topics discussed include Iran Iraq War, how countries are pressured to take loans from the IMF, ”the people’s mic”, the Occupy Movement, nonviolent protests where people expect to be attacked by the police, Oakland protests, and more!
