    The Rebel's Handbook The Rebel's Handbook Presentation Transcript

      The Rebel’s Handbook
    • Step 1
      Create an organization.
      Find people who will dedicate themselves to the cause.
      The ANC was created in 1912 to increase the rights of the black South African population. In the later years, Nelson Mandela was recruited into the ANC, where he then would become the president of the ANC, and then the president of South Africa.
    • Step 2
      Create a list of goals and raise awareness
      Create a list of goals that will show others of your intentions, and then raise awareness of the problem locally.
      The ANC created the Freedom Charter, a set of goals stating their intentions and with it, inspired many new recruits to the ANC.
    • Step 3
      Find a leader.
      The leader should be dedicated to the cause and has responsibility for their actions.
      The leader should be willing to die for the cause.
      From Nelson Mandela’s “I Am Prepared to Die”:
      “I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”
      Nelson Mandela was the leader of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the armed wing of the ANC, and president of the ANC from 1991-1997. Nelson Mandela was arrested for sabotage and attempting to over throw the government, and spent 27 years in a prison on Robben Island. Nelson Mandela was offered freedom if he would stop the violence occurring in South Africa, but he refused the offer.
    • Step 4
      Create alliances with other organizations.
      Having more allies will give you more power, an advantage to create change, and more influence.
      The ANC teamed up with the MK and the White Communist Party to help them create change.
    • Step 5
      Capture the attention of other countries.
      Organizing a public protest will capture the attention of the world, and will show how many people support your cause.
      On March 21, 1960 in Sharpeville, the South African Police opened fire on approximately 300 protestors, killing 69 black people and injuring another 180. The massacre captured the attention of other countries, creating sympathetic demonstrations in many countries and caused a condemnation by the United Nations.
      In the township of Soweto (South Western Townships), protests came about over the government’s policy to enforce education in Afrikaans instead of English. The police opened fire killing 23 people.  In the aftermath, economic and cultural sanctions were introduced from abroad.
      Although the Sharpeville and Soweto protests became very violent, violence was not the protestor’s intentions, so do not raise violence or people will get hurt.
    • Step 6
      Include your enemies in change.
      If you exclude your enemies, your enemies will create protests and try to create more change.
      When Nelson Mandela became president of South Africa, he included white people into the new government, for example, he chose a white woman to be his personal assistant, and also had white body guards. Nelson Mandela wanted to include his enemies, and not exclude them, otherwise the unfairness towards blacks would have become unfairness towards whites.
    • Conclusion
      Step 1: Create an organization.
      Step 2: Create a list of goals and raise awareness.
      Step 3: Find a leader.
      Step 4: Create alliances with other organizations.
      Step 5: Capture the attention of other countries.
      Step 6: Include your enemies in change.
      If you follow these steps, you will be likely to succeed in creating a revolution.
