Budrus – non-violence succeeds where violence fails

Richard Lawson on the successful efforts of the villagers of Budrus to unite and re-route Israel’s security barrier, as well as the obstacles – internecine as well as Israeli – which confront Palestinians who adopt non-violent resistance. Non-violent resistance to the occupation, and to violence itself, needs international support, and it needs to see these kinds of results.

The story of the villagers’ campaign has been made into a film.

    A techie question: does anyone know why I’m not getting the link to the video? This happens to me on the JC website.

    I get an empty box, with a little square in the top left corner.

    This looks interesting though.
