Description: Across the world, nonviolent movements are in the forefront of resistance against repression, imperial aggression and corporate abuse. However, it is often difficult for activists in other countries to know how best to assist such movements. The contributors to Unarmed Resistance and Global Solidarity place nonviolent struggles in an international context where solidarity can play a crucial role. Yet they also warn that good intentions are not enough, solidarity has to listen to local movements. Using clear examples, the contributors assess various forms of solidarity, criticizing those in the global North who try to impose their view of what is possible and arguing that a central role of solidarity is to strengthen the counter-power of those resisting domination and oppression.
