People Power is about politics, about strategy and about social change. As a leader of a popular movement you fight against tough adversaries who control the police, the army and bureaucracy, even the media. The only weapon in your hand is your strategic skill and ingenuity.

A unique interactive teaching tool in the field of nonviolent conflict, People Power was produced for The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC) by York Zimmerman Inc.

People Power is built on nonviolent strategies and tactics used successfully in conflicts around the world. The game simulates nonviolent struggles to win freedom and secure human rights against a variety of adversaries, including dictators, occupiers, corrupt regimes, and to achieve political and human rights for minorities and women. The game models real-world experience, allowing players to devise strategies, apply tactics and see the results.

In creating People Power, our development team incorporated the hundreds of ideas and suggestions sent from users around the world who’d played our first game, A Force More Powerful.

About the Game

This game is recommended for players age 14 and older, and is currently available in English. We plan to release versions of the game in Arabic, Russian, and Spanish by the end of 2014.

The Game Developers

People Power is the product of a three-year collaboration of experts on civil resistance and nonviolent strategy. The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict encourages and disseminates information on civilian-based, non-military strategies to establish and defend democracy and human rights worldwide. York Zimmerman Inc. is an independent film and video production company located in Washington, D.C. that produces documentaries about people and ideas that change the world. Veterans of recent successful nonviolent campaigns consulted actively in the design and development, including Ivan Marovic, a founder of Otpor!, the Serbian resistance movement that played a critical role in the defeat of Slobodan Milosevic. Political scientists, sociologists, and economists also provided advice.
