Statement of Purpose

We, as military veterans, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others both nationally and internationally.

To increase public awareness of the causes and costs of war.

To restrain our governments from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations.

To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons.

To seek justice for veterans and victims of war.

To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.

To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.

Speaking Truth to Power: faces of war

This 11-minute slide show was part of the "Speaking Truth to Power" event that was produced by chapter members Paul Turner and Ymani Simmons. Speakers at the event included Ray McGovern, former U.S. Army Intelligence Officer and 27-year CIA veteran and analyst; Gareth Porter, investigative journalist and historian who specializes in U.S. national security policy; and U.S. veterans Conor Curran, Brock McIntosh, Mike Prysner and Josh Steiber (veteran of the Wikileaks “Collateral Murder” company).

More videos of the event will soon be released and posted here soon. A DVD will also be available.
