In this webinar Matt Meyer explores the rich history of peace and pacifist encounters in Africa over the past century. Understanding that solidarity and social change are dialectical two-way streets, the presentation does not only review the work of those from Global North reaching out to Southern colleagues but equally examines the deep roots of indigenous African initiatives of unarmed civil resistence.

Matt is the War Resisters' International Africa Support Network Coordinator. Meyer is an educator, activist and also someone who writes on organising strategies and philosophies on the colonization and anti imperialism, and on the role of the military and prison in modern societies appear in numerous journals, magazines, and online news sites.
