Shop owners are building barricades, people are fleeing the city, demonstrators are clashing with the police and the German agency for fighting crime LKA is predicting sabotage and fire in the next days – the G20 Summit has finally arrived in Hamburg. To oppose violence, Cinema for Peace is planning to show to protesters at the hotspots Schanzenviertel, Stadtpark and Entenwerder the film Everyday Rebellion as an example for nonviolent resistance.
Everyday Rebellion is a story about the richness of peaceful protest, acted out every day by passionate people from Spain, Iran, Syria, Ukraine, USA, UK, and Serbia. These methods are inventive, funny and non-violent. Nonviolence has scientifically been proven to be more effective and successful than violent protest.
