Ecosocialist Horizons was honored to attend the first fully Pan-African conference on nonviolence in Cape Town, South Africa this July. Organized by War Resisters Internatonal, this historic gathering was the largest Pan-African gathering of organizers and activists for revolutionary nonviolence since the height of the anti apartheid struggle, and gave birth to the newly formed Pan-African Network for Nonviolence and Peacebuilding. In addition to participating in the theme group “Resisting the War on Mother Earth: Reclaiming Our Home“, Ecosocialist Horizons produced a public event on July 5 at Cape Town City Hall: “Act Now Against Climate Catastrophe: From Satyagraha to Ujamaa!”
