The this Peace news “How We Win” workshop if for you. Drawing on decades of activist experience, this is an opportunity to explore how to take effective action to create changes we want to see in the world.

Emily & Gabriel will share wisdom in “How We Win” by George Lacey. This Guide to Nonviolent Direct Action Campaigning reveals best practices for fostering cooperative, inclusive leadership and unity with diversity and explains how campaigns can become building blocks for a movement of movements that transforms an unjust society.

Gabriel Carlyle has over 20 years experience of direct action campaigns in the peace and environmental movements. In 2009 he was one of 114 activists arrested for allegedly planning to shut down a coal-fired power station at Ratcliffe-upon-Soar in Nottinghamshire.
