Peaceful resistance – sometimes called Nonviolent Direct Action (NVDA) – has a long and noble history of use in combating injustice and righting wrongs: from the
Egyptian laborers strike for pay in 1170 BCE to the US civil rights movement and the Arab Spring and beyond. In the 1990s peaceful protest successfully de-railed Margaret Thatcher’s multi-billion pound road-building programme in a remarkably short space of time.
On Saturday 12 January 2013, the Combe Haven Defenders will be holding a workshop in St Leonards on peaceful resistance. This event will run from 11am – 5pm with a break for lunch, and is open to all opponents of the Link Road. The venue is: No 2, Christ Church Courtyard, London Road, St Leonards, East Sussex,TN37 6GL (nearest station: St Leonards Warrior Square).
