'The challenge to those who believe in nonviolent struggle is to learn to be aggressive enough.' (Barbara Deming, 1968) 

'Rejecting the optimistic gradualism of reformists and the despair of tired radicals, we now declare ourselves for nonviolent revolution.' (George Lakey, 1976)

'Nonviolent revolution' is not a contradiction in terms, but a strategy for radical change. For decades now, Peace News has been championing feminism, nonviolence, anarchism, and bottom-up democracy as a way of making social change. Come along and find out more. All welcome!
