Wildcats Against Rape (W.A.R.) meet at K-State Women's Center
representation of Tiananmen Square to illustrate our mission. In 1989 hundreds of college students in Beijing were massacred for nonviolently protesting injustices within their government. When the tanks began
arriving at the scene of the protest, one man stood at the front of the tanks to stop their progression. This one man held up a line of over 17 tanks for a significant period of time. He didn’t carry a weapon.To learn more about this http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/june/4/newsid_2496000/2496277.stm
Although our name is W.A.R. we are a nonviolent culture-change group. We are not out to patrol the streets, place blame, or 'get those rapists.' Our goal is to change the part of our culture that makes it acceptable for people to take control away from others and behave in a violent, selfish way. W.A.R. may be a small group of individuals but ideals of peace and nonviolence is what gives us hope and strength.
