Webinar: Learn non-violent tactics for a war-torn world
From our good friends at Voice of Women for Peace. With so much violence in the world, and the need for social change, this workshop on non-violence is very timely.
Starting March 6, 2023, Science for Peace and Voice of Women for Peace will be co-hosting a three-part webinar series: ‘NONVIOLENCE: THE TACTICS AND STRATEGIES OF WINNING CAMPAIGNS’.
Each session will feature A BRIEF, DOCUMENTARY FILM ON a significant and effective nonviolent campaign. In the DISCUSSION FOLLOWING THE FILM, a Facilitator, supported by a Guest Expert, will assist members of the audience in thinking through the strategic and tactical lessons for effective nonviolent action that the successful campaign suggests.
ON MARCH 6 AT 7PM ET, we will begin our first session, ‘INDIA: DEFYING THE CROWN.’
In India in the 1930s, after Gandhi had returned from South Africa, he and his followers adopted a strategy of refusing to cooperate with British rule. Through civil disobedience and boycotts, they successfully loosened their oppressors’ grip on power and set India on the path to freedom.
