How on earth can any of us challenge might of authoritarian government? Samuel Chu has been contesting government over-reach and human rights abuses in China, Russia, Belarus and more – and as a US citizen and community organiser has a refreshing take on how we can all contribute to a movement against authoritarianism.

In this episode he explores how community organising has helped him think strategically about building democratic alliances across countries, and building democratic capacity everywhere.

Samuel has previously been on ChangeMakers to talk about the Hong Kong Security Act in May 2020
