Is it true that violence is the only way we have at our disposal to fight against violence, cruelty, and injustice? Is it true to say that violence is an alternative to resolving these problems? The answer is NO. In fact, there are a number of nonviolent ways to resist violence and injustice in our daily life. The present book is a compilation of short, true stories of nonviolent resistance by the actors, ordinary people in conflict areas such as in West Kalimantan, Maluku, and Central Sulawesi.
This series of short, accessible and true stories are ignored or hardly ever heard and known by most people. Nonviolent resistance is of course a less popular subject than the violence that the mass media favors. Reports of violence are frequently reported, disseminated and broadcast through communication channels because they draw a greater audience since they are more exciting than reports of peaceful action.
