Tyranny is a global problem and should be addressed as such. Today, 4 billion people are living under authoritarian regimes, and collaboration and support among dictators from all continents and irrespective of their political leanings is becoming the norm. Yet, civil society in these countries often finds itself isolated and fighting for democracy alone. What then is the solution to this worldwide network of oppression? In this workshop, Venezuelan democracy leader Leopoldo López will guide activists on the importance of uniting and organizing a cohesive movement for freedom globally. Based on his experiences as the leader of one of Venezuela's most prominent political parties and a prisoner of conscience, Lopez will explain the need for a strategic narrative used by democracy defenders worldwide, how to properly take advantage of new technology for effective activism, and how to rekindle the enthusiasm to fight for freedom.
