Pietro Ameglio is one of the most important teachers and practitioners of active nonviolence in Latin America today. He is a key organizer in the Mexican Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity that emerged in 2011 in response to the spiraling toll of dead and disappeared in the so-called "war on drugs." He co-founded the Mexican Peace and Justice Service and Thinking Out Loud, a Gandhian-inspired nonviolent action collective in Mexico, and authored the book "Gandhi and Civil Disobedience: Mexico Today" (2002).
