Another good quote from the Dec 15th panel discussion

December 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

On December 15th there was a panel discussion in Oakland: Panel discussion: How will the Walls Come Tumbling Down? Diversity of Tactics vs. Nonviolence

You can see the recording of this session at http://www.livestream.com/ppwn/video?clipId=pla_b26bcb17-7f69-413f-a607-ff169fcc4a8a&utm_source=lslibrary&utm_medium=ui-thumb

Here’s another quote from Kazu Haga that is sitting particularly well with me:

“Where have violent movements brought about the changes that we want?
Because for me, there have been revolutions of course. 
There is not a single country in the world that has true justice;
the type of society that we want to create.
And so I would argue that we need something that’s never happened before,
which is the whole world to commit to nonviolence.”

Quotable quote from the panel discussion on Dec 15th

Kazu Haga (Kingian Nonviolence.trainer) said this in the panel discussion on Dec 15:

“The struggle is not against the 1%.

The struggle is not between the 1% and the 99%.

The struggle is between the 100% and injustice.

    This event, sponsored by Occupy Oakland’s Events Committee, will feature advocates for nonviolence and advocates for diversity of tactics.In addition to the challenges we face in pressuring the 1%, we also have the challenge of trying to better understand and work with fellow 99%ers with whom we may not always see eye to eye. The first step in being able to work together despite our differences is to better understand each other’s stance.This event is not meant to be a debate, but a friendly, respectful dialogue between panelists who will advocate for both sides.
