Olympia Holds Workshop to Challenge Military ‘Solutions’

Posted by Ryan Hall
10.01.15

On Tuesday September 15 Glen Anderson with Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation facilitated a highly interactive workshop in Olympia WA for the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions.

The workshop’s title – “Military ‘Solutions’ Are Really the Problem!” – conveys the workshop’s main message that the U.S.’s military-focused foreign policy actually undermines global and national security.  It was sponsored by the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation, www.olympiafor.org.

Fewer persons attended than hoped.  Though they didn’t get any photos,  people can get an idea of the contents and participation from the 90-minute video that was taken when Glen facilitated this workshop at a different event on July 4.  Here is a link to that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pdZNBoP4wQ or see it below.
