A nonviolent Civil disobedience workshop.


Todd May presents a follow up to his Nonviolent Resistance workshop. If you were in attendance for his first workshop then you know you don't want to miss this.

This is a general workshop to discuss Nonviolent Civil disobedience.

It's character, it's role in social movements historically and in today's struggle for social justice, Peace and equality. We will discuss this type of actions pros and cons in a given situation.

The first part of this workshop will offer an understanding of what nonviolent Civil Disobedience is, historical examples of its application.

The second hour will involve discussion of movements that are currently taking place in Greenville and asking how Nonviolent civil disobedience in action might complement the current movements. If time allows we will plan a hypothetical Nonviolent civil disobedient direct action against a local target.
