"Learning to Live Into a World Beyond War." First Congregational Church, 700 Marion St. NE, 10-5. No charge.

 

What would a world without war look like? Is it possible? How can I help bring it about? If these questions interest you, your input on this new form of peace training is needed.  

 

Long-time nonviolence trainer Peter Bergel, working with Joy Henry, a recent graduate of PSU's Conflict Resolution Department, and Sherri Maurin, a nonviolence trainer from the Bay Area, has developed this training in cooperation with World Beyond War and Campaign Nonviolence. Now they are looking for input from trainees in order to fine-tune it. Take advantage of this opportunity to be among the first to take this new training without charge and to help make it even more effective.  

 

Email Peter Bergel at pbergel@igc.org to indicate your interest in participating or to inquire further.

Whether against pipelines and oil trains, coal exports, deforestation, or nuclear waste, activists here and around the world are fighting for the environment and the safety of their communities. But what relationship do these projects have to global imperial competition? And how can we use an understanding of this relationship to better fight for social and environmental justice here and abroad? Join the International Socialist Organization for a presentation and discussion on the role of global capitalism in environmental catastrophe and what strategies we can use to stop it.
