Nonviolence Training

Second edition of the Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns is launched!

The new handbook is available from the WRI webshop, here:

http://wri-irg.org/node/23245

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.

Fortaleciendo la acción noviolenta en África

Queridos amigos, queridas amigas,

En Sudán del Sur, la Organización para la Noviolencia y el Desarrollo (ONAD), una organización afiliada a la IRG, está sembrando las semillas de la noviolencia.

A pesar de los cambios de actitud y comportamiento de personas y grupos como resultado de los entrenamientos de noviolencia de la ONAD, mucha gente sigue creyendo que la lucha armada puede lograr los cambios que le gustaría ver. En Sudán del Sur, donde algunos civiles poseen armas, la sociedad está altamente militarizada. Mientras que algunos han entregado sus armas al gobierno, el desarme tanto de mentes como de corazones es igual de necesario si queremos evitar la actual militarización social.

Why call it nonviolent action?

By Brian Martin

Strikes, boycotts, sit-ins, fasts, mass rallies — these are familiar to many people. They are commonly called methods of nonviolent action. But what exactly does the expression “nonviolent action” refer to? Are there other expressions that would be better? And how well does nonviolent action work?

There are no definitive answers to these questions. A lot of people have opinions, but there are important differences and uncertainties, including among peace activists. Here, my aim is to provide a few perspectives to provide a basis for discussion. First I’ll look at how nonviolent action is defined, then at arguments for using it and at what makes it effective, and finally at different expressions. Through this, I’ll use “nonviolent action” as the provisional expression, acknowledging that others might prefer something different.
