Book launch: Why I am a Pacifist, by Tim Gee (London)

Join PPU member Tim Gee for the launch of his new book 'Why I am a pacifist', as he explores the tough questions that pacifism throws up.

Tim Gee tells the story of why he became a pacifist and what it means to him. Tim reflects on the lives of peacemakers past and present to provide responses to questions like “Don’t we have to hit back if we're hurt?”, “Don’t we need war to respond to evil?” and “Doesn’t religion justify wars?”. This is a critique of war, but more than that, it stakes a claim for pacifism's feminist and anti-racist qualities. This is a call for a more nonviolent world.

This is a book in the 'Quaker Quicks' series, in which Quakers explain how they live their faith in the world.

This will be the first event in Tim's book tour, supported by Fellowship of Reconciliation https://for.org.uk/ and Quaker Peace and Social Witness. The Peace Pledge Union will have a stall at the event. All are welcome!
