Gene Sharp (Protest and Persuasion) t shirt by Guy Pendlebury



One of a series of eight t shirts celebrating Gene Sharp, the Machiavelli of non violence” and on this shirt the Intervention group within the 198 techniques described in From Dictatorship to Democracy that can be used to rid your country of governors and governments who should go away and play with themselves.

Gene Sharp has defined how we allow ourselves to be governed, how we grant governments power over us and particularly how we can withdraw the permission we have granted. It is in the way of things that governments and governors are reluctant to give up that to which they have become accustomed and when confronted it is to be expected governments will fight to keep their authority. Gene Sharp has codified how such governments can be peacefully resisted with 198 distinct techniques, all of them non violent.
The techniques were first used in the break up of the Soviet Union. Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Serbia, Ukraine, Georgia, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan have all successfully used Sharp’s methods. It is understandable Arab resistance movements might be reluctant to credit an American academic for their Arab Spring found freedoms but is there much doubt Gene Sharp provided the vision and the map that allowed them to escape? I understand someone counted something in excess of 100 of the 198 Gene Sharp defined techniques in the so far unsuccessful Green Revolution in Iran. Unsuccessful? Give it time, I think the Ayatollahs and their puppet, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are dead men wa*king.

Celebrate and admire an iconoclast and promote techniques that will give us all freedom and better self expression, wear our Gene Sharp T shirts. 10% of the purchase price of these shirts will be sent to The Albert Einstein Institute in Boston. The institute was founded by Gene Sharp in 1983 and is dedicated to advancing the study and use of strategic non violent action in conflicts throughout the world. Buy the whole set of shirts and enjoy free post and packing to any country in the world and we will send a donation of £20 to The Albert Einstein Institute.

The shirts:

These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with cool-max-image-e1485361440757.png fibres ring spun into yarns manufactured exclusively for WeAdmire. These yarns are then knitted into a single jersey fabric suitable for t shirts.

The CoolMax bit exploits the surface tension of water to wick moisture from your skin. It works through micro channels engineered into the profile of the fibre. These channels are physical attributes, they are there for the life of the fibre.

The Fresh FX bit embeds a silver salt in the molecular structure of the fibre that stops the propagation of bacteria which, left unchecked, ultimately cause a sour odour. Because the silver salt is embedded within the fibre it, like the wicking, is similarly permanent; it will not leech out with wear and washing.

These attributes deliver shirts that remain cool and dry almost regardless of what you might do in them and similarly they remain fresh. And the ongoing performance of the fabric is guaranteed. This is important, these shirts will become your favourite items of apparel, you will want to wear your shirts again and again.

These shirts are marvellous to travel with, they stay fresh if you don’t have the chance to wash them, they wash easily when you do have the chance, and they dry super quickly. There is also a very useful side effect to all this: our shirts keep anything you wear on top of them and what you might wear after wearing them fresher too.

The cut and fit and sizing of these shirts is exclusive to us and was specified by Anastasia Vouyouka, a published guru of fit in the fashion industry.

The feel of the very best natural fibre shirts you have experienced with the performance of the fibres that set the benchmarks for wicking and freshness. It is very unlikely you will have experienced this level of technical performance in a decorated t shirt before.
