29/7 Creating a nonviolent world – Anarcho-Pacifism and the development of nonviolent space / a talk by Joe Llewellyn

We kick off our new series Another World is Possible with a presentation by Joe Llewellyn on ‘Anarcho-Pacifism’. Joe is studying at the University of Otago’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies and is involved in the Dunedin Organisation for Global Nonviolent Action.

This talk will have two parts: Firstly, I will discuss anarcho-pacifism, what it is, and how it became part of my worldview. Secondly, I will provide some suggestions for how we can start to reclaim and create space in society, free from dominant forms of physical, structural and cultural violence. This reclaiming of space can be combined with resistance and direct action to create “another world”.

An abstract will be posted shortly. In the meantime, mark your diaries 29/07 6pm at our new venue, lower level of the Dunedin Civic Centre (enter on George Street). RSVP on facebook here.
