Stories from Australia

One of the aims of this site is to develop a repository for resources with Australian content for use with From Violence to Wholeness and Engage workshops. We encourage you to make use of these, and to suggest additions to us.

 

Australian Nonviolent Direct Action Stories Kit

These kits includes facilitation notes and a set of short stories about nonviolent direct actions taken right here in Australia in the last 10 years. We find they really help nonviolence workshop participants ‘imagine themselves into’ NVDA; they mobilise where King, Gandhi, et al inspire. Feel free to use them in your own nonviolence workshops!
