Michael Nagler discusses unarmed civilian peacekeeping

    Our friends at the Metta Center posted a great video discussion between Metta president Michael Nagler and Alex Hildebrand of Peace Brigades International. The focus is mainly on unarmed civilian peacekeeping, but there are also some other great side conversations. For instance, at the very beginning Dr. Nagler describes what first drew him to nonviolence and the teachings of Gandhi—which is a type of story I always enjoy hearing from any peacemaker.
