Civil Disobedience & NonViolent Action
"Nonviolent resistance ... is based on the
conviction that the universe is on the side of justice. Consequently, the believer
in nonviolence has deep faith in the future.
This faith is another reason why the nonviolent
resister can accept suffering without retaliation. For he knows that in his struggle for
justice he has cosmic companionship."
(Martin Luther King)
NonViolent Action - What is it for us?
We have held up the ideal that people willing to
demonstrate: Faith, Love, and Personal Sacrifice can be the means of effective
social change. More specifically, that Parents can promote Family Law reform by
1) Faith in a loving God,
2) Love for their children, former spouses, and other "brothers and
3) Willingness to make Personal Sacrifice,
NonViolent Action allows you to demonstrate through
"unambiguous physical action" the depth of your Faith and belief in
your "cause." It is a positive demonstration of love given at
sometimes tremendous personal cost.
-how it was practiced by Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Thoreau and others.
