Nonviolence

Conscientious objection is one important aspect of nonviolence and antimilitarist action. I myself refused to perform military and substitute service in 1986, and got some trials which lasted until 1991.

This section contains some articles I wrote, and gives some information on the field of nonviolence and antimilitarism. I try to expand this section step by step

Series Nonviolent January

PortadaManualCampanasNoviolentasWe live in a violent world. We suffer the social and environmental consequences of a capitalist economic system based in irresponsible growth. We suffer the "Ley Mordaza" (a Spanish law increasing repression of protest) and the reform of the Penal Code, the brutal politics related to "foreigners" and borders, the repressive police response to social protests... These forms of violence, within the framework of a society which in addition is hetero-patriarchal and in an open systemic crisis, makes us desire change in the direction of a nonviolent transition.


 


Every Tuesday of January, beginning on 12 January, and also during the workshop on Saturday, 30 January, we put the focus on the violence the system exercises and on the different nonviolent alternatives that exist as a protest or action against inequality and social injustice.
