Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems you have little knowledge of the labour and socialists movements history.

Progressive international movements have been running similar campaigns since the XIXth century, including:

  • Publishing and freely distributing copies of material about practical civil disobedience and revolution
  • Cash funding
  • Practical support in the form of books, t-shirts, stickers, and so on. (Which might seem trivial, but these items turn out to be game changers.)
  • And, some times, even formal and informal military consultancy and training

Ever heard of the International Workingmen's Association?, the Second International?... (the list is quite long)
