Selection of Texts on Nonviolent Struggles

Monday, February 8th, 2016

On December 2014 CWP has organised “A whole in a Brickwall” conference on Non-Violent struggles and
strategies for change
This booklet with selection of texts from various struggles and georaphical areas is another way of sharing the

knowledge that was gathered in movements all over the world, including Israel-Palestine

Nonviolence and Nonviolent resistance are by themselves very broad concepts and their various interpretations and manifestations are even broader and more diverse. We do not attempt providing in-depth explanations or discussing all the complexities and dilemmas regarding the struggles and their modes of operation. Instead, we chose to present several essential points and to describe several incidents and struggles from different places in the world that we can use for learning and drawing inspiration

Over the years, notions of nonviolent resistance have attracted considerable criticism. One of the major examples is the criticism voiced by Malcolm X against the approach identified with Martin Luther King Jr. Several questions and criticism have been raised also in the recent times, in the course of demonstrations and consolidation of protest movements worldwide, and in the struggle against the occupation.
It is important to remember that nonviolent struggle is not homogenous or dichotomic, it is not divided only into supporters and opponents. Rather it raises various issues and dilemmas, several of which are presented in this publication

Coalition of Women for Peace is marking our  15th anniversary by screening testimonies collected especially for this event: women from Susiya and the Jordan Valley talking about their daily reality of living under Israeli occupation

Facebook event

Also on the agenda: a photo exhibition and a panel discussion on human rights violations and the lives of Palestinian women under occupation

Together, we will mark years of activism and partnerships in the struggle against the occupation and subjugation of the Palestinian people. We will take a closer look at the complexities and vulnerabilities of the lives of Palestinian women under occupation. And together, we will think about ways and activities to change the reality of occupation and transform the current political discourse that ensures Israel’s impunity from international law.
