Workshop: Nonviolent Civil Disobedience Demystified

Sunday, April 13, 2003
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Midland Regional Library, Large Meeting Room
805 SE 122nd
While the institutions of violence require a person of certain age and fitness to do the work, nonviolent action can be practiced by anyone. This is a free introductory workshop on nonviolence and civil disobedience for the curious and the serious. Participants will get a taste of views of nonviolence, elements involved in civil resistance, and what it could feel like to do an action. This is a forum for discussion, but not a debate on the merits of civil resistance. After this workshop, some participants may feel ready to plan their own civil disobedient action, while others may be inspired to deepen their study of nonviolence.

Hosted by the Portland Buddhist Peace Fellowship

Civil disobedinece is fine as way to train youth and recruit them for armed struggle. But now is the time to be more direct, with the whole world looking at the US as a sorry case of evil scum - we can fight and win.

I wish there were more time to debate you funny non-violnce people - but you won't talk or think - so please at least care what you are doing - and do not poison young minds wihth your lies - the people can support armed struggle without doing it - collect mony, food, safe houses, weapons and other equipment.
