 Description
Nonviolent resistance has proven to be an effective alternative to armed struggle in situations of great injustice and even in war time. This event completes a three part film series on the use of nonviolence. The film presents the campaign of nonviolent mass action in South Africa that was formed to undermine apartheid in the mid-1980s. This system of legalized discrimination kept the Black majority uneducated, destitute and oppressed in every way. A devastating consumer boycott awakened whites to black grievances and fatally weakened business support for apartheid. A discussion will follow the film.
