War Resisters' International (WRI) is a network of mutual support, where we learn and support each other. Our 'Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns' is a vivid example of the strength and depth of the WRI network. In 2009, WRI published the first edition of this handbook, as a response to a need for a resource on nonviolent campaigning that could be used by grassroots groups in lots of different contexts. The content was based on the experience of many activists in different countries and across generations.
