The Dangers of Non-Violence

from GAF Does Lockdown

Interview with Peter Gelderloos on The Dangers of Non-Violence - GAF does Lockdown Ep. 11

The recording from yesterday's talk with PeterGelderloos is now available! We talked about the history of militant resistance, diversity of tactics, the role of non-violence on counter-insurgency and a lot more. Give it a watch!

Peter Gelderloos is an anarchist activist and writer who for years has been talking about the dangers of the non-violent doctrine in social movements and advocating for a diversity of tactics as necessary for achieving meaningful social change. Today many movements around the world have learnt this lesson and, despise the eventual recuperation of most of them, uprisings and protests in places like Chile, Hong-Kong and Minneapolis have shown the importance of allowing multiple strategies to be used and rejecting the narratives used by the media and the elites to separate us. Still new generations in the environmentalist movement have been convinced that a rigid adherence to non-violence is the only way forward. That’s why we are gonna talk with Peter to challenge these ideas and offer an alternative perspective on the discussion between non-violence and diversity of tactics.
