One of WRI’s key resources is the Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns. This book is a collection of articles written by over 30 activists from around the world, and illustrates key ideas in running campaigns that are radical, effective, and sustainable.
We’re now making plans to build a new website called ‘The Nonviolent Resistance Manual’. The new website will host all the content in the Handbook – with lots of new stories and content – to make it more accessible to even more people. We’re running a crowdfunder to help us raise the funds we need to make this a reality – we’re aiming to raise £1,000 by 3rd October.
The Nonviolent Resistance Manual will be available in several languages, allow users to contribute their own stories, and include new content about constructive forms of social change, like radical housing cooperatives, occupied factories, and community gardens.
We have some exciting ‘perks’ to say thank you for contributions:
- £15 and we’ll send you a Broken Rifle pin badge
- £40 gets you a copy of the original handbook (and a badge)
- £60 and we’ll send you a hand printed “war is a crime against humanity” tote bag (and a book, and a badge)
- £80 means a hand printed “war is a crime against humanity” t-shirt (and a book, and a badge) is all yours!
