Nonviolent Action at the White House

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.22.15

Organizers with Campaign Nonviolence and the National Campaign for Nonviolence Resistance gathered in Washington, DC on Tuesday Sept. 22 for the CNV Week of Actions. Guided by conscience, reason, and deeply held convictions, they called on all people of good will to come to Washington, DC to actively participate in a witness of nonviolent civil resistance calling on Congress and the White House to take meaningful action as we confront the climate crisis, the unending wars, the root causes of poverty, and the structural violence of the military-security state. While in DC, they held an occupation of a Congressional office, followed by direct action at the White House. See the full description of this action here.

See a few photos in the slideshow below. Plus see the recorded videos of the White House event that were livestreamed here.  You can also go directly to watch John Dear’s talk here or below.
