Statement of Non-violence:
GWCSJ believes in peaceful protest and non-violent civil disobedience. We do not damage property or engage in any form of aggressive behavior toward police and other security personnel. We do not condone violence against persons or property in our organization or our movement. We believe that our message of peace and justice is not served by images of violence and destruction. We believe that a better world is possible and that in the common struggle to build it, our methods must be consistent with our goals.
