Jo Pyronnet

Joseph (Jo) Pyronnet (1927 - 2010) was a philosopher, a committed man of action and prayer, who dedicated his life to the promotion of non-violence.
Joseph is born in 1927in the village of Trébas on the banks of the Tarn, in southwest France. One day, the boy asks God that there will never be war again. Formulated at the approach of the Second World War, this prayer was not answered as he wished, but, he says, "God answered me by allowing me to work to the realization of my prayer".
With Ghandi and Martin Luther King as examples, Pyronnet becomes an active French advocate of non-violence, especially in the light of the French war in Algeria.
