  87. "The Term has Become Meaningless to Me": on Violence, Social Change, and Nonviolent Communication
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Violence means different things to different people. While some people find it important to show their opposition to acts like touching someone against their will or supporting an oppressive regime, others mill about in confusion around the middle of the space when facing supposedly unambiguous statements such as "murder is violent." Participants from the same family or the same activist group disagree on the classification of certain acts as violent. In our context, two important questions arise out of this apparent incoherence of the term: what are the implications for Nonviolent Communication? And, what does this mean about nonviolence as a political strategy for social change?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1997
    To those who still allow their anti-union biases and their exposure to employer misinformation to cloud their perception of reality, I would pose the following question: If the employer and its supporters are really the victimized peace-loving martyrs that they pretend to be, why are the union members the ones who always end up in the hospital?
