‘Non-violence – A Style of Politics for Peace’

Does violence perpetuate violence? asks HOT’s Zelly Restorick. Has the use of violence taught you anything? Is violence a necessary element within human beings? An over-active attribute in some members of our human race? Physical violence? Mental and emotional violence? Is violence the only way? Non-rhetorical questions. Genuinely and sincerely asked.

Resist Trump

American Independence Day, 4 July, saw a meeting in Hastings which focused on the resistance within America to Donald Trump’s presidency. US-born local resident, Tamara Stevens, spoke about the opposition triggered by Trump’s election victory last November. At the meeting she explained that central to the opposition has been Indivisible: a guide to the most effective ways to influence Congress. The guide was produced by former Congressional workers who understood what made politicians listen, an insight gained by observing the success of the right-wing Tea Party movement in influencing US politics. John Enefer writes.
