LOS ANGELES (AFP) - The Arab Spring uprisings and Occupy-style US protests have inspired a new genre of serious videogames designed to help activists develop strategy - all in the safety of cyberspace. Games like People Power (The Game of Civil Resistance) allow would-be protest leaders to build and test their plans for peacefully opposing the police or the government without actually hitting the streets. The game, which promises an opportunity to join a community of others who want to learn about civil resistance and nonviolent strategies, was created by York Zimmerman Inc, along with the International Centre on Nonviolent Conflict.
