Koinonia community member Nashua Chantal works for peace and justice by being a “Peace Clown” in dialogue with everyone he meets. He often uses humor to break down barriers to communication, sporting a bright red, round nose—a “Peace Knows”! (Get it?) Thousands of Peace Noses have been distributed to people of all ages, colors, professions, political and religious persuasions. Nashua maintains a website wherein he seeks to create a global Peace Knows movement—visit www.StudyWarNoMore.org and get involved!
In 2005, Nashua served a 90-day sentence in federal prison for civil disobedience at the School of the Americas/WHINSEC in Fort Benning, GA. Learn more about Nashua’s actions at Ft. Benning.
“Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and establish such creative tension… to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored.”
