The Strength of Nonviolence


The coalition forming in Europe under the banner “The Strength of Nonviolence” is  comprised of a group of women and men who don’t want to remain passive in the face of blatant advocacy of violence by those in positions of power (totalitarianism of corporate capitalism) and  threaten the present and future of all. They believe that change is possible, but all the positive people must converge in common actions, maintaining the differences that enrich the whole. They write: “We have found inspiration in the great ideals and guides of nonviolence, examples that should be studied, expanded and put into practice. With this spirit in 2007 we have set in motion the campaign Europe for peace, for a Europe free from nuclear weapons and today we launch this on-line petition against the installation of a U.S. radar base in Czech Republic, a dangerous project that has already increased the international tensions and unleashed a new arms race.” See the powerful short video they made during Barack Obama’s recent visit to Prague.
