  Nonviolence in Action


Nonviolence in Action

No philosophy can survive in stagnation. Nonviolence is no exception. Through this page we bring you closer to active nonviolent campaigns that are using the Gandhian method with improvisations to seek social, political and economic change. We hope this page becomes a place where people interested in nonviolence can learn from real examples. If you would like to share your experiences of a nonviolent campaign then please do not hesitate to write to us at info@yidream.org.

Our main nonviolence page provides the theoretical framework for nonviolent campaigns. If you are interested in starting a nonviolent campaign and need help then do let us know. We have some useful resources at our disposal that we would be delighted to share with you. We hope the writings on this page inspire you to action.
