We invite you to join us on Monday, March 2, 7:00p.m. for a presentation by DAVID HARTSOUGH, legendary nonviolent activist. David will speak about his new book "Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist." Since meeting Martin Luther King, Jr. as a teenager in the mid-1950s, David has been actively part of many key nonviolent movements over the last half-century: the civil rights movement, the anti-nuclear testing movement, the movement to end the Vietnam War, the U.S. Central America peace movement, the anti-apartheid movement, and the movements to end the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In recent years he has helped found the Nonviolent Peaceforce and a new global venture to end armed conflict, World Beyond War. Please help us spread the word about this amazing evening. Read more about David.

PEACE:
Global Adventures
of a Lifelong Activist
Monday, March 2, 2015, 7:00 PM
AT the Resource Center for Nonviolence, 612 Ocean St., Santa Cruz

David Hartsough knows how to get in the way. He has used his body to block Navy ships headed for Vietnam and trains loaded with munitions on their way to El Salvador and Nicaragua. He has crossed borders to meet "the enemy" in East Berlin, Castro's Cuba, and present-day Iran. He has marched with mothers confronting a violent regime in Guatemala and stood with refugees threatened by death squads in the Philippines.
"Waging Peace" is a testament to the difference one person can make. Hartsough's stories inspire, educate, and encourage readers to find ways to work for a more just and peaceful world.
Inspired by the examples of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., Hartsough has spent his life experimenting with the power of active nonviolence. It is the story of one man's effort to live as though we were all brothers and sisters.
A peace activist's eyewitness account of many of the major historical events of the past sixty years, including the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War movements in the United States and the little-known but equally significant nonviolent efforts in the Soviet Union, Kosovo, Palestine, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.
Hartsough's story demonstrates the power and effectiveness of organized nonviolent action. This struggle is waged all over the world by ordinary people committed to ending the spiral of violence and war.
Co-sponsored by the Resource Center for Nonviolence and the Santa Cruz Friends Meeting and the Santa Cruz Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Books will be available for purchase.
