#NoWar2018: Designing a World Beyond War: Legalizing Peace
September 21, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - September 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm$13 – $72
You say you’re against war, but what’s the alternative? Let’s design and build an alternative system of global governance – one in which peace is pursued by peaceful means. Learn how at World Beyond War’s #NoWar2018 Conference!
We will explore how the rule of law has been used both to restrain war and to legitimize it — and how we can re-design systems to abolish the institution of war and uphold human and ecological justice.
Plenaries and workshops will cover topics such as Canadian wars, weapons, and indigenous rights; tax resistance; creative activism; divestment from war profiteers; people’s tribunals; departments and other national infrastructures of peace; citizen action using the rule of law against war; and more.
Featured speakers include:
- Christine Ahn, Founder of Women Cross DMZ
- Medea Benjamin, Co-Founder of CODEPINK and Global Exchange
- Doug Hewitt-White, President of Conscience Canada
- Kevin Zeese, Co-Director of PopularResistance.org
The conference kicks off on Friday, September 21, the International Day of Peace, and concludes with a Blue Scarf March for Peace on Sunday, September 23. Register here.
