This two-part documentary series explores how nonviolent power overcame oppression and authoritarian rule. The video begins with a look at the nonviolent lifelong struggle of Mohandas Gandhi. In the first episode, nonviolent actions were applied to the civil rights movement in 1960s Nashville, Tennessee; against British rule in India in the 1930s; and against apartheid in 1985. Episode Two examines the German invasion of Denmark in 1940; the demand for independent unions by striking workers in Poland in 1980; and during the military dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet in Chile in 1983.
