Por Jesús Castañar Pérez

Extracto del prólogo

Faltaba un texto breve, actualizado y sintético que, además de no desdeñar la reflexión crítica, lograra sortear el riesgo del anacronismo mientras recuperaba la genealogía del pensamiento sobre la acción noviolenta. Ésas son las virtudes principales de este libro de Jesús Castañar. El autor se sitúa en el centro de los debates que más han preocupado a los partidarios de la noviolencia, para centrarse después en desmenuzar la historia de sus principales corrientes, sin obviar tampoco un repaso previo de la historia de las ideas políticas que hicieron nacer los primeros planteamientos referidos a la desobediencia civil y a lucha noviolenta.

Social change doesn't just happen. It's the result of the work of committed people striving for a world of justice and peace. This work gestates in groups or cells of activists, in discussions, in training sessions, in reflecting on previous experiences, in planning, in experimenting and in learning from others. Preparing ourselves for our work for social justice is key to its success.

Colombia has one of the oldest internal armed conflicts in Latin America. This conflict involves on one hand the various armed actors such as the guerrilla groups ELN (National Liberation Army) and FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), the paramilitaries, and the State's armed forces and other security corps. On the other hand, we find unarmed power actors implicated in the war, such as the political and economic elite, transnational companies, and the mass media as it is controlled by the national economic empire, which openly supports the military and aggressive stance of the current government.
