Voices from the South E-Newsletter: January 2014
Around the world, grassroots movements, civil society organizations, and global citizens are joining together in their struggle to create a just world. They are utilizing strategic and creative non-violent methods against particular powers, forces, policies, regimes, and economic systems that uphold systems of dominance and injustice.
In this month’s “Voices from the South,” Ranjan Solomon, director of Badayl Alternatives in India, explores the concept of “transformative resistance,” i.e. civil resistance efforts that aim for long-term systemic transformation. This article will be the first in series of articles on civil resistance, a priority area for the Karibu Foundation’s work and advocacy in the next three years.
