Editorís Comments

†††† Wishing you a fine New Year. The world continues to go through many shifts producing a great many developments in areas of our concern. The winter issue of NCJ focus on articles and commentary, with a shorter compilation of news and notes than in the spring and fall issues. We welcome your thoughts about all that is in progress. These pages serve as a networking and dialoguing vehicle between annual meetings. We strongly encourage you to contribute articles (up to 2500 words), news, announcements, comments, queries, responses and art work. It would be very fine if we could develop ongoing discussion from issue to issue. We especially invite you to send us a brief note about what you are doing, your concerns and queries, relating to nonviolent change, for our "What We Are About" column." Whenever possible, please make submissions on disk or via
