At the 'Small Actions, Big Movements' conference in South Africa, War Resisters' International released the new edition of the 'Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns'. At a launch event, different contributors read from the handbook, described the inspiration behind creating a new edition, and explained their various contributions.

The handbook aims to show how a group can achieve their goals by developing a strategy (a plan as to how they will exert the necessary pressure to make change), before exploring what strategy looks like in reality. The handbook was written by over 30 people from countries all over the world, and aims to reflect and empower nonviolent activists internationally.

Sowing Seeds: The Militarisation of Youth and How to Counter It

Sowing Seeds: The Militarisation of Youth and How to Counter ItSowing Seeds: The Militarisation of Youth and How to Counter ItEdited by Owen Everett

Around the world children, adolescents, and young adults encounter the military and military values in a variety of ways, from visits to schools by military personnel, to video games and the presence of the military and its symbols in public places. Young people are encouraged to see the military as necessary and valuable; something to be supportive of, not to question.

Through articles, images, survey data and interviews, Sowing Seeds: The Militarisation of Youth and How to Counter It documents the seeds of war that are planted in the minds of young people in many different countries. However, it also explores the seeds of resistance to this militarisation that are being sown resiliently and creatively by numerous people. We hope the book will help to disseminate these latter seeds. It is not just a book for peace and antimilitarist activists: it is a book for parents and grandparents, teachers, youth workers, and young people themselves.

Breve Historia de la Noviolencia

Por Jesús Castañar Pérez

Extracto del prólogo

Faltaba un texto breve, actualizado y sintético que, además de no desdeñar la reflexión crítica, lograra sortear el riesgo del anacronismo mientras recuperaba la genealogía del pensamiento sobre la acción noviolenta. Ésas son las virtudes principales de este libro de Jesús Castañar. El autor se sitúa en el centro de los debates que más han preocupado a los partidarios de la noviolencia, para centrarse después en desmenuzar la historia de sus principales corrientes, sin obviar tampoco un repaso previo de la historia de las ideas políticas que hicieron nacer los primeros planteamientos referidos a la desobediencia civil y a lucha noviolenta.
