His opponents were led by a student movement called Otpor! (Serbian for "resistance"), who attacked the regime with ridicule, rock music, and a willingness to be arrested. Their courage and audacity inspired others to overcome their fear and join the fight, leading to Milošević's fall from power, arrest, and extradition to the Hague to stand trial for crimes against humanity

A force more powerful a century of nonviolent conflict( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General Augusto Pinochet seized power in Chile in a 1973 military coup and banned political parties, closed newspapers, and spread fear throughout the country as disappearances, torture and imprisonment became common. In 1983, an economic crisis pushed many Chileans to oppose the dictator for the first time. Copper miners called for a nonviolent national protest day against Pinochet. Mainstream opposition parties re-ermerged after ten years and staged frequent non-violent demonstrations. They realized that the constitution Pinochet wrote in 1980 called for a plebicite--a chance for people to vote yes or no on another eight years of military rule. Pinochet had always assumed he would win but the opposition ran a bold, future-oriented "NO" campaign and in 1988 Pinochet was voted out
