Video of Webinar on Fasting for Justice

By World BEYOND War, March 3, 2021

Fasts and hunger strikes are a time-honored form of political resistance and non-violent protest. Watch our webinar from February 27, 2021, to learn more about this powerful tool for justice from those who have used it to campaign against violence, and for prisoner justice, climate action, and demilitarization. We also announced an upcoming fast in April 2021 to oppose Canada’s planned purchase of 88 bomber planes and shared information on how you can get involved.

Speakers included:
—Kathy Kelly – American peace activist, pacifist and author, three-time nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize
—Souheil Benslimane – Abolitionist, prisoner and migrant justice organizer, Coordinator of the Jail Accountability and Information Line (JAIL) hotline, member of the Criminalization and Punishment Education Project (CPEP) and the Ottawa Sanctuary Network (OSN)
—Lyn Adamson – lifelong activist, co-founder of ClimateFast, National Co-Chair of Canadian Voice of Women for Peace
—Matthew Behrens – writer and social justice advocate, coordinator of the Homes not Bombs non-violent direct action network

This event was hosted by World BEYOND War, Voice of Women for Peace, Pax Christi Toronto, the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute and ClimateFast.
