Nonviolent Civil Disobedience to Stop War

January 4War Resisters League Chicago Chapter Author:  "Crossing Lines and Doing Time: Nonviolent Resisters Speak out for Peace"Meeting #3,254 - Rosalie Riegle, WRL National Board member, says:  "I believe firmly that if we are to make democracy work, we must work politically across the spectrum, both within the system and outside it.  Because I wanted to learn more about peaceworkers who are called to civil disobedience, I interviewed 173 war resisters who have risked arrest and sometimes long prison terms to speak in the loudest way possible against US militarism.""Peacemakers have contributed their oral narratives to this compelling history of those who say no to war making in the strongest way possible: by engaging in civil disobedience and paying the consequences in jail or prison.  Crossing the Line gives voice to often neglected social history and provides provocative stories of actions, trials, and imprisonment."  Information on Book
