‘Nonviolent Campaigning’ with Jungmin Choi, Andrew Dey, Cattis Laska, Hulya Ucpinar, Christine Schwe

To launch the second edition of WRI's ‘Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns’ international nonviolent activists will share campaigning methods and tactics.

War Resisters' International launches the second edition of its Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns. The handbook is a selection of methods, tools, and experiences of using nonviolence to create tangible, long-lasting change in situations of violence and oppression. While our movements are diverse, we all share the common goal of challenging violence and oppression in our communities.
Campaigners against extractive industries in South America, community nonviolence trainers in Kenya, and activists blocking nuclear convoy routes in Germany all share as a common theme: they struggle against a form of violence, and to do this they build their movement's power and enter into nonviolent conflict.

Hosted by WRI, the evening will share stories of contributors to the handbook from Turkey, South Korea, Sweden, Germany and the UK
Speakers include:
- Jungmin Choi of World Against War in South Korea, involved in the movement against the construction of a naval base on Jeju Island
- Hulya Ucpinar of the Nonviolence Research Center in Turkey
- Cattis Laska of Ofog a Swedish antimilitarist network in Sweden involved in queer and antimilitarist actions
- Christine Schweitzer: Chair of WRI
- Andrew Dey: Handbook editing coordinator involved in Action AWE, campaign against the renewal of Trident.
