Non-Violence

The CDC eternally upholds the tenet of non-violence in all its ramifications. Recognizing the role violence

has played in destroying the Liberian society, we abhor any attempt to use violence as a means to political solution or understanding. We believe violence only breeds violence and further destroys nations and peoples.

Those who seek violence as a solution to problems are wrong and deserve no place in our society. We hold dear that political tension, differences and disagreements are best resolved or minimized through conduits of consensus-building, concession-making and dialoguing which draw critical strengths from the democratic tradition. The CDC will forever oppose all individuals, movements and parties that are intent on depicting Liberia as a nation ruled by violence.

We believe pursuing non-violent approaches to our political problems provides the basis for more genuine and sustainable solutions and enables all Liberians to live in peace.
