Nonviolent protest is moving the world. People from New York, Cairo, Tehran, Damascus, Madrid, London, Paris and Kiev form movements and make their discontentment public in a fun and creative way. What is it that Occupy, the Spanish "Indignados" and the Arabic spring have in common? Where are the intersections between the Ukrainian topless activists from "Femen" and the opositionnal protests in Egypt? Even though the reasons for protests differ, the creative and nonviolent tactics resemble and inspire each other in surprising ways.
