Enough Blood Shed (PDF)

101 Solutions to Violence, Terror and War

by Mary-Wynne Ashford
with Guy Dauncey



Enough Blood Shed confronts the reality of a world awash in weapons and the belief that war is inevitable, with people powerless to change the system. It provides an alternative perspective based on solutions known to be successful because they have been used already.

The first part of the book describes the culture of violence that has led the world to this precipice of hopelessness, and then points to signs of hope that a different future is possible. It outlines the steps being made to build a culture of peace, including the phenomenal power of civil society: the second superpower - or the conscience of society. Part Two then focuses on the solutions that are possible for all sectors of society:

  • For individuals, including women, children and youth
  • For schools, educators, activist groups and religious organizations
  • For the media, professionals, business and labor
  • For cities, nations and the global community

Focusing on the power of ordinary people to make a difference and packed with effective nonviolent success stories - often in a setting of hate and provocation - the book provides guidance, inspiration, hope and empowerment that peace is not only possible, but can be fun along the way.
