Power to the Peaceful
Resurgence was born out of the anti-war movement of the 1960s, and nonviolent resistance to the nuclear arms race. In this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist, we return to our roots, with an exploration of the role of peaceful protest today in our crisis-afflicted world. Vandana Shiva discusses the legacy of India’s ‘treehuggers’ and recent farmers’ protests, and we consider the role of ‘culture jamming’ when challenging the messages of consumer culture.
In the Ecologist section Brendan Montague speaks barrister David Renton about the UK’s Policing Bill. Whilst in Connected Life Vandana K looks at a how a number of initiatives in India are developing ways to cool down homes and find solutions to heat stress; and Phuong Quach writes a tribute to Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
For our Feature Story, Charlie Jones and Dan Warrender explore how caregivers can move from anxiety to empathy, making space for more compassionate health care. In Wisdom & Wellbeing Satish Kumar talks to Jane Goodall about living with hope in challenging times and in Art & Culture Pascale Petit speaks with Louisa Adjoa-Parker about Nature poetry.
