Uprising

A root cause of terrorism in far-away countries, Canadians are told, is poor, desperate young people who turn their frustrations and anger on their "rich oppressors." Uprising brings this scenario home to Canada. When impoverished, disheartened, poorly educated, but well-armed aboriginal young people find a modern revolutionary leader in the tradition of 1880s rebellion leader Louis Riel, they rally with a battle cry "Take Back the Land!" Theirs is a fight to right the wrongs inflicted on them by "the white settlers." They know their minority force cannot take on all Canada. They don't need to. A surprise attack on the nation's most vulnerable assetsits abundant energy resourcessends the Canadian Armed Forces scrambling and politicians reeling. Over a few tension-filled days as the battles rage, the frantic prime minister can only watch as the insurrection paralyzes the country. But when energy-dependent Americans discover the southward flow of Canadian hydroelectricity, oil, and natural gas is halted, they do not remain passive. Although none of Canada's leaders saw it coming, the shattering consequences unfold with the same plausible harmony by which quiet aboriginal protests decades ago became the eerie premonitions of today's stand-offs and "days of action."

This Is An Uprising

This Is An Uprising

Strategic nonviolent action has reasserted itself as a potent force in shaping public debate and forcing political change. Whether it is an explosive surge of protest calling for racial justice in the United States, a demand for democratic reform in Hong Kong or Mexico, a wave of uprisings against dictatorship in the Middle East, or a tent city on Wall Street that spreads throughout the country, when mass movements erupt onto our television screens, the media portrays them as being as spontaneous and unpredictable. In This is an Uprising, political analysts Mark and Paul Engler uncover the organization and well-planned strategies behind such outbursts of protest, examining core principles that have been used to spark and guide moments of transformative unrest. This is an Uprising traces the evolution of civil resistance, providing new insights into the contributions of early experimenters such as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., groundbreaking theorists such as Gene Sharp and Frances Fox Piven, and contemporary practitioners who have toppled repressive regimes in countries such as South Africa, Serbia, and Egypt. Drawing from discussions with activists now working to defend human rights, challenge corporate corruption, and combat climate change, the Englers show how people with few resources and little influence in conventional politics can nevertheless engineer momentous upheavals. Although it continues to prove its importance in political life, the strategic use of nonviolent action is poorly understood. Nonviolence is usually studied as a philosophy or moral code, rather than as a method of political conflict, disruption, and escalation. This is an Uprising corrects this oversight. It argues that if we are always taken by surprise by dramatic outbreaks of revolt, and if we decline to incorporate them into our view of how societies progress, then we pass up the chance to fully grasp a critical phenomenon—and to harness its power to create lasting change.

Kenz is under the reign of an oppressive regime led by those they call the Silencers. The youth of the world, who are born into a life with special abilities, are sent on the run, sometimes by their own parents. Now the young refugees must form a resistance and take down the government.

Since then, she’s bounced around between foster homes—until now. Her childhood sweetheart has come back and is taking her to a new world. Frightened at the thought, she finds courage in the chance of finding her little sister once again. But she never expected to find herself with the power necessary to lead a war. Jassyn is the reason that soldiers are afraid to hunt for refugees in the woods. Since the day that she witnessed her family’s massacre, she has been a fighter by every definition. She’s been training herself, honing her body, and turning it into a weapon. Now that Adrian has arrived in Kenz, the war that Jassyn’s family died for, the one that had gone cold, is reignited. The Uprising is a novel that explores the importance of taking a stand. It’s a book about kids and teenagers taking on an army.

The Rift Uprising

The Rift Uprising

“High emotional stakes and an intriguing premise make this first entry in Foster’s (When Autumn Leaves) new trilogy a solid next read for those who enjoyed Pierce Brown’s Red Rising or Veronica Roth’s Divergent." -- Library Journal An alternate reality that feels all-too-real, The Rift Uprising is the explosive start to a new trilogy that blurs the line between parallel universes—not to mention YA and adult science fiction—from acclaimed lyricist and storyteller Amy S. Foster. Normal seventeen-year-old girls go to high school, binge watch TV shows all weekend, and flirt with everyone on the face of the Earth. But Ryn Whitaker is trying to save it. Ryn is a Citadel. A soldier. A liar. Ryn and her fellow Citadels were specially chosen and trained to guard a Rift—one of fourteen unpredictable tears in the fabric of the universe that serve as doorways to alternate Earths. Unbeknownst to her family, Ryn leaves for school each day and then reports for duty as an elite, cybernetically-altered soldier who can run faster, jump farther, and fight better than a Navy SEAL—which comes in handy when she’s not sure if axe-wielding Vikings or any number of other scared and often dangerous beings come through the Rift. A fine-tuned weapon, Ryn is a picture-perfect Citadel. But that’s all about to change. When a young man named Ezra is pulled through the Rift, Ryn finds herself immediately drawn to him, despite her training. What starts as a physical attraction quickly grows deeper, and Ezra’s curiosity throws Ryn off balance when he starts questioning the Rifts, the mysterious organization that oversees them, and the Citadels themselves—questions that lead Ryn to wonder if the lies she’s been telling her family are just the surface of a much bigger lie told to her. As Ryn and Ezra desperately try to get to that truth, they discover that each revelation blurs the line between the villains and the heroes even more.

Rastafarian S Uprising At Coral Gardens Jamaica

Rastafarian S Uprising At Coral Gardens Jamaica

The Rastafarian's uprising in Montego Bay, Jamaica on 'Black Thursday' April 11th 1963 is an indelible monument in the Rastafarian movement which is indigenous to Jamaica. Selbourne Reid, the author of this book, was a police officer and a member of the rifle group in the leading police party, escaped unhurt but some of his co-workers were seriously injured. He saw a man chopped to death within three to five (3Ft-5Ft) feet away as well as one of his co-worker seriously injured. He ran from the scene and while he was running he saw another of his co-worker being hacked to death. Selbourne could not help, as he had no ammunition for his rifle. This book is designed to satiate the reader who has a flare for humor. For example, The account of 'A memorable lie', or 'The Obeah-man' who stripped a young lady in a public place-in a bar-and anoint her nude body with some type of oil which he said would cause her to have an abortion.' This man did other ludicrous acts and was subsequently arrested. There is also a question as to whether Inspector Fisher was saying 'Where is Jimmy?' even when he was being chopped by the Rastaman. Christian and ethical principles are highlighted in this book, as well as some lessons and techniques, which can be learned by some supervisors, public administrators and police or military leaders. Selbourne was employed in Law enforcement and Social work in Jamaica and the United States of America for over thirty-five years. He writes about certain incidents in his work experience. Selbourne Reid graduated with a BSc. Degree in Public Administration from of The University of The West Indies, Mona campus, Jamaica.
