Adèle Kirsten, Gun Free SA’s Director, tells the remarkable story of how Gun Free South Africa, a small NGO with few resources, mobilized to reduce the number of guns in circulation. Through innovative campaigning and media strategies, the book highlights the value of involving ordinary people in a process that resulted not only in a new law, but deeply influenced the thinking of many of those in search of genuine solutions to a post-conflict society.
