Storyboard Text

  • This is OUR land!
  • This is our land!
  • This madness must stop!
  • Start by considering the Third Side...
  • William Ury, what can we do??
  • "In addition to the two sides involved in a conflict, there are important THIRD SIDE roles played by others."
  • "For example, in the WITNESS role, the press plays a role making everyone aware of actions on all sides."
  • "The EQUALIZER role helps empower the weak and unrepresented."
  • "Coaxing a more powerful, but recalcitrant, party to the table... or empowering people through nonviolent action... are examples of this role."
  • "The ARBITRATOR can end conflict by making a decision for the parties... "
  • "...BUT this requires that both parties jointly select the arbitrator — AND they agree to be bound by the decision."
  • "The MEDIATOR can facilitate communication between the parties to help reconcile conflicting interests."
  • "If the parties are ready, the mediator can help bring them to the table. Getting them to TALK... and talk some MORE... is very effective."
  • ALL of these roles can work TOGETHER on the conflict. Look for opportunities to empower existing Third Siders, or add NEW ones.
  • Thank you Mr. Ury!!
