where do you stand on nonviolence?

Rhetorical question... - the following post is from the opirgmcmaster.blogspot.com site:

[participants playing the violence spectrum game]
Despite the obstacles presented by a last minute change of location, 20 people made it to the Creative Protest and Nonviolent Civil Disobedience workshop with facilitator Matthew Behrens, held in the comfy confines of the McMaster University Student Centre.

Lots of interesting discussion, with participants, from high school students to university professors, health care workers and university students, contributing much to the overall tenor of the workshop. Some shared their experiences with recent protests like the G20, and others sought ways to creatively address social justice in the workplace.

Much to think about, and hopefully a more detailed article to follow...
