Nonviolence in action

Here we offer a range of  reflections, stories  and resources on nonviolence in action.   We also outline what more we can offer in our In Direction of Nonviolence programme. They will help us move  from a  culture addicted to war and violence to a culture where our first choice is peace and nonviolence.
