Ending the Violence

As you may know, yesterday was the AfroSpear's Day of Blogging for Justice against tasers. If you haven't yet, you can read my latest anti-tasing blog here.

Here are some more:

Electronic Village Wants to End Taser Torture

Eddie Griffin's Message to the Fort Worth Police

From My Brown-Eyed View

Dallas South

Antoinette's Pont of View

There are many more. Feel free to add your voice. We need to stop this violence against African people. Tasers are widely used in the U.S.A. and will be in the UK unless we stop this.

The only real way to stop violence is with nonviolence. I am not talking about passive resistance as was used during the civil rights era of the 1960s. I am talking about creative communication, also known as Nonviolent Communication (NVC).

NVC is used in many parts of the world, incuding places that have a history of extreme violence, such as Rwanda and Burundi, Sierra Leone, and Israel and Palestine.

NVC is changing people's lives. We can use it to transform the way the police operate so that everyone's needs are respected.

The Law of Attraction tells us that what we put our energies into increases and expands. The Law of Increase says that what we concentrate on, what we focus on, increases.

So if we focus on the solution, we will find more and more solutions.

It is important that so many people have blogged and are continuing to blog about tasing, as it is being used to assault and even kill African people.

We need to be aware of the problem. This is vitally important. But even more crucially, we need to focus on solutions.

I will be leading a course in London on NVC for the African Caribbean community in October. Check my web page, Improving Relationships/Improving Communication, for updates.

For more information, see Nonviolent Communication.

We can bring about positive change and transformation. We can transform this situation. Find out more and get involved.
