Be the change

The nonviolence is resistance that moves towards the dialogue

“Be the change you want to see in the world”

– Mahatma Gandhi

Construct and work together, little by little. Our vision of a world free of all types of violence needs to be reflected in our actions and attitudes.

For SweFOR nonviolence is strategy as much as ideology. On one hand, we know that nonviolent strategies are normally more effective than those based in weapons, force and coercion. On the other hand, we think that nonviolence does not mean defeating an opponent, but about looking for dialogue. Nonviolence is resistance, but always with the objective to look for solutions that all parts can accept.
