Construyendo Movimientos a Nivel Local – el caso de “Turning the Tide” en Kenia

Laura Shipler Chico

Cuando, tras las últimas elecciones de 2007 en Kenia, estalló la violencia, los cuáqueros keniatas tuvieron una pronta respuesta en un primer momento con ayuda humanitaria, para luego ir de casa en casa escuchando las experiencias de la gente y sus preocupaciones. Con el tiempo empezaron a ayudar a la gente a procesar el trauma y volver a unir a sus comunidades. Pero según hacían esto, la gente les decía, “Nos decís que no seamos violentos. Pero si no hubiésemos sido violentos, vosotros no estaríais aquí.” Algunos de los que escucharon ese mensaje prometieron volver con una estrategia para hablar con fuerza y en voz alta en contra de la injusticia social, pero sin recurrir a métodos violentos.

WRI at the World Social Forum 2007: Report

Introduction

"People's Struggles - people's alternatives" was the theme of ther 7th World Social Forum which took place in Nairobi from 20-25 January 2007. War Resisters' International took part in this World Social Forum with a 10-persons strong delegation.
