Democracy Spreading Mechanism
(1) Organize one or more political parties locally. (Janata Dal Constitution) Keep its components open as well as clandestine to maximize the safety of the members.
(2) If more than one party, form a coalition.
(3) Let there be a build up of protest rallies in many villages and towns to culminate in one decisive protest rally in the capital city. (Take Over Tundikhel) Depending on the local conditions, you might face a military crackdown, or the regime might fall, or you might have to declare the formation of a parallel government that the international community must come forth and recognize.
(4) The coalition government thus formed is the interim government to function under an interim constitution that will take the country through a constituent assembly to draft the country a new democratic constitution. (Proposed Republican Constitution 2006)
(1) Get organized, stay organized. Form organizations, form umbrella organizations, form coordination councils to reach out to the diaspora in other countries.
(2) Stay in regular touch. Use the internet to the max for the purpose. Use tools like Google Talk, Blogger, Google Video. Set up shop in the border towns and the nearby big cities.
(3) Lobby foreign governments, and supra national organizations all the way to the UN. Work the media. Become your own media.
(4) Raise funds. Fund the movement to the max. Three components to power: money, message, organization. Set up a mechanism that has high standards of accountability.
(1) Enforce the international laws and treaties and declarations that serve the cause of human rights.
(2) Fund the democracy movement. Provide logistical support to the war with communications technology under way.
(3) Issue regular statements of support.
(4) Impose smart sanctions against the autocratic regime. Impose economic sanctions if need be. Take action in the Security Council if the human rights situation might thus beckon.
(5) Recognize the parallel government should it have to be formed.
(6) Take the dictators to the International Criminal Court, or help set up country tribunals in the aftermath. Help set up Truth And Reconciliation Commissions.
