WIN magazine

“… This is the first issue of the War Resisters League’s newest expression of our oldest practice: nonviolence. Although this latest incarnation is new, WIN magazine is not. The Workshop in Nonviolence (WIN), a direct action group in New York City and an affiliate of the Committee for Nonviolent Action and WRL, steadily produced a lively magazine from 1966 to 1983. In that time, a host of dedicated characters contributed to and helped produce WIN, many of whom still work closely with WRL. WIN magazine was full of beautiful artwork and articles covering everything from resistance to the Vietnam War to women’s liberation and gay rights to prisoner uprisings. It is with a desire to remember the old WIN, and with the same commitment to radical nonviolence, that we introduce a new WIN for a new era of war resistance. Coming at you four times a year, WIN wants to be your movement manual—your organizing resource and your political inspiration—to be scribbled in, photocopied, shared, and talked back to. We want to see you often—in your local bookstore, community space, online, and (of course) on the streets. Carrying the mission of the Nonviolent Activist (the product of the merger of the old WIN magazine and WRL News) forward, WIN will continue covering resistance to war and nonviolent movements around the world through its articles, interviews, and reviews. WIN will also cover the wars waged against people in the United States—addressing issues such as the prison-industrial complex, police brutality, violence against women, and immigrant rights. Not content to simply report, WIN will nurture our readers as activists, equipping them with relevant and accessible information to support their organizing work. In addition, WIN hopes to reach new writers and audiences and to foster critical alliances between the War Resisters League and a wide range of organizations and movements working for social justice. …”
