"Popovic is the executive director of the Belgrade-based Center for NonViolent Action and Strategies (Canvas). He was one of a handful of students at Belgrade University who, in 1998, established Otpor ("resistance"), a political movement aimed at overthrowing Slobodan Milosevic. Instead of marches and speeches, Otpor relied on street theatre and pranks -- their guiding spirit was Monty Python's Flying Circus. After two years, Otpor had 70,000 members, and Milosevic fell."

"Established in Belgrade, CANVAS has worked with pro-democracy activists from more than 50 countries, including Iran, Zimbabwe, Burma, Venezuela, Ukraine, Georgia, Palestine, Western Sahara, West Papua, Eritrea, Belarus, Azerbaijan and Tonga and, recently, Tunisia and Egypt. It works only with groups with no history of violence and only in response to requests for assistance. CANVAS’ training and methodology has reportedly been successfully applied by groups in  (2003),  (2004), Lebanon (2005), The Maldives (2008) and Egypt (2011)."
