Srđa Popović: How to overthrow a dictator
Since the war in Ukraine, many have been wondering how to get rid of dictators like Putin. We asked ourselves the same question and therefore invited Srđa Popović to our podcast. Srđa was part of the movement that liberated Serbia from dictator Slobodan Milošević in the late 90s. Today he advises movements around the world from Sudan, the US to Brazil. There he supports activists who fight for democracy. That's why the Guardian once called him the "architect of global revolt." In the podcast, he talks about his lessons learnt about strategy, how to use humor against the military, and the relationship between dictatorships and the climate crisis.
