Peter Gelderloos is an
anarchistauthor from Harrisonburg, Virginia( United States). He is best known for his 2005 book, " How Nonviolence Protects the State".
Gelderloos was arrested in 2001 while attending a protest at the Georgia-based
Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, a controversial school that trains Central and South American soldiers and police. [ [http://www.soaw.org/article.php?id=361 Gelderloos's profile] , SOA Watch] He was sentenced in 2002 to six months in prison.
In "How Nonviolence Protects the State" Gelderloos sets out to " [debunk] the notion that non-violent activism is the only acceptable and effective method of struggle." [Traven, B. " [http://crimethinc.com/blog/2007/04/06/how-nonviolence-protects-the-state-by-peter-gelderloos/ Review: How Nonviolence Protects the State by Peter Gelderloos] ",
CrimethInc.com, 2007-04-06.] The resulting work has been frequently compared to Ward Churchill's " Pacifism as Pathology". [ [http://www.amazon.com/dp/0896087727 Amazon.com: How Nonviolence Protects the State] ]
In May 2007, Gelderloos was arrested in Spain and charged with public disorder and illegal demonstration during a
squatters' protest. Police have accused Gelderloos of playing a leadership role within the protest - a claim which he calls "fairly absurd." Although released on bond, Gelderloos has been unable to return to the United States as a result of his impending trial. His family contends that it will not be possible for him to receive a fair trial in Spain, citing a judge's assertion that "the United States would put him in Guantanamo for what he had done."

Gelderloos is currently working on a book called Anarchy Works, answering some of the most common questions about anarchism.
