Peace Action

Peace Action: Struggles for a Decolonised and Demilitarised Oceania and East Asia

This book contains stories about activists, their organising and their causes, and the interconnections between social struggles separated by the vast expanse of Te Moana-Nui-A-Kiwa. It includes chapters on the Doctrine of Discovery, on protecting Ihumātao, on anti-militarist organising in South Korea, on campaigning against US military training in Hawai'i and Japan, on French colonialism in Ma'ohi Nui and Kanaky, about Korean peace movements in Aotearoa and Australia, about Indonesia's occupation of West Papua, on feminist resistance to war in so-called Australia, on NZ's history of Chinese-Māori solidarity, and on peace gardening at Parihaka. It is a book to inspire, to educate and to enrage. It is a book to motivate us all to peace action.
