PEACE NOW

Imagine Peace

If you can imagine a culture that VALUES peace you can create the tools to affect it. What we hope to accomplish on Antiwar.me is to imagine and offer socially engaging projects that encourage people to show that they value peace. By engaging more people to be actively pro peace instead of disinterested bystanders, we can unify and grow a voice and a movement to oppose the unchecked military indutstrial complex and U.S. War Policy.

War you have to try and justify. Peace you just have to believe in.

Imagine Peace. Show Peace. Be Peace.

Espionage and Sedition act of 1918

100 years ago, during World War I, the U.S. Congress passed the Espionage and Sedition Acts of 1918. Wartime censorship was broadly applied and anything that cast the government or the war effort in a negative light or interfered with the sale of government bonds could land you in jail for years.

The act was repealed on December 13, 1920, but not before thousands of people were convicted and jailed for what we consider free speech and freedom of expression.

Sedition Art Contest

You would have never thought that you could be turned in for having a negative opinion about the U.S. government or talking about our involvement in foreign "wars". Yet 100 years ago Congress passed such a law and it allowed broad censorhsip and fomented civil thought policing.

In recognition of this muting of free speech we’re holding an art contest encouraging all pro peace activists to freely express their thoughts and images about diplomacy, foreign policy, and how we get to a more peaceful future.
