In this episode of Peace Paradigm Radio you will hear an inspiring piece on nonviolent direct action and interfaith organizing from Ken Butigan of Pace e Bene and Campaign Nonviolence. You will meet Mercedes Mack, Metta intern, writer and researcher on the history of nonviolence (she has a big career ahead of her, and apparently she has a great cat, too (you have to listen to the show to understand that…); and then we turn to the main focus of the show: Mexican nonviolence scholar and peace activist Pietro Ameglio in conversation with Michael Nagler on the search for nonviolent justice in Mexico.
