‘Why I am a Pacifist’ with Tim Gee

Wednesday November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

£1 – £5

Tim Gee tells the story of why he became a pacifist and what it means to him. Gee reflects on the lives of peacemakers past and present to provide responses to questions like “Don’t we have to hit back if we’re hurt?”, “Don’t we need war to respond to evil?” and “Doesn’t religion justify wars?”. This is a critique of war, but more than that, it stakes a claim for pacifism’s feminist and anti-racist qualities. This is a call for a more nonviolent world.

Tim Gee is a writer and campaigner. His first book, Counterpower, shortlisted for the Bread and Roses Prize for radical non-fiction, explored movements for change through history. He has written for The Guardian, New Internationalist and the Independent, and has worked for Friends of the Earth, Christian Aid, Quaker Peace and Social Witness. Gee lives in London, UK.
