For over four decades, Angie Zelter has campaigned for a greener, fairer and safer world. In this remarkable account of her campaigning life, she shares some of the lessons she has learnt from her actions in many different countries. Heartfelt but clear, Activism for Life includes personal insights into mobilising for effective, sustainable non-violent protest actions, dealing with security, police and courts and how seemingly different issues are actually closely intertwined.
ANGIE ZELTER has been an active campaigner for most of her life. She has designed and participated in non-violent civil resistance campaigns and founded several innovative and effective campaigns. Her protests have been for a nuclear free world, that shares global resources equitably and sustainably while respecting human rights and the rights of other life forms. As a global citizen she has expressed her solidarity with movements all over the world. This has led to numerous arrests, court appearances and incarceration. Angie has been arrested around 200 times, mostly in the UK, and in Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Gran Canaria, Holland, Israel/Palestine, Malaysia, Poland and South Korea. She has spent over two years in total in prison awaiting trials on remand or serving sentences. All for non-violent resistance protests. The author of several books, she is the recipient of the 1997 Sean McBride Peace Prize (for the Seeds of Hope Ploughshares action), the 2001 Right Livelihood Award (on behalf of Trident Ploughshares) and the Hrant Dink Prize in 2014. She continues to actively confront the abuses of corporations, governments and the military.
