Volumes Volumes

Regular price $5.00

December 2016, 22.5 x 30 in, newsprint poster

Poster reproduction of Gene Sharp’s 1973 list, 198 Methods of Nonviolent Action and a companion essay, Gene Sharp: A Global Educator by Jørgen Johansen, published in 2016 during the most contentious presidential election campaign in U.S. history. While the campaign will be remembered as a trauma no doubt, its result, the president-elect announced on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 is such a devastation to communities across the globe that Sharp’s methods are needed with new resonance and vigilance. Compiled both across and outside of any singular philosophy, religion, faith, era, or worldview, Sharp’s list asserts that nonviolence can be derived and implemented out of pragmatism by any organized body, and that it must for us to productively and peaceably live.
