3.5% Can Change the World

Non-violent protests are twice as likely to succeed as armed conflicts. Those engaging a threshold of 3.5 percent of the population have never failed to bring about change.

The Singing Revolution in Estonia and the Rose Revolution in Georgia along with others are given as examples of successful protests that resulted in serious change. Not only are peaceful protests more ethical than violent protests, but they also are more likely to gain the popular support needed.

Possible Preaching Angle:

The disciples and the early church, though small in numbers, changed the entire world through a peaceful preaching of the gospel. So too believers today, though in the minority, can change a home, a neighborhood, and beyond.
