Armistice Day, 100 years of perfecting war

As Jack Kenny pointed out earlier this week on, those from an older generation may remember that Veterans Day used to be called Armistice Day – the day the guns fell silent in war-torn Europe at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918.

Today should mark the 100th year anniversary of the end of the war to end all wars and yet we are currently at war (officially) with 7 countries. We even made it easier to flex U.S. military might with the Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Insta-war, just add President, no congress required.  While various actors in the peace community loudly and strongly oppose the current wars and occupations this country is involved in, it seems that the community as a whole has not yet figured out how to perfect peace, meanwhile the US military is doing such a good job of perfecting war. Here at, we have been asking this very question for a number of years now. How can we escalate peace in such a way that our leaders in D.C. can no longer ignore the millions of Americans who are war weary?

Over the years we have done our best to put a positive spin on pro peace activities and aimed to bring bright, loving color to the Anti-war message but sadly we feel we are only left with taking things to bit closer the the edgy truth: that war is grim and the job of a peace activists is not going to be an easy or bright and colorful one.

This Armistice day we hope you reflect and remember the millions of lives lost in the name of war but perhaps you might also think of ways to prevent the loss of any more lives for senseless occupations and military police actions. Little things, every day activism, can be a powerful drip in your circle of friends and influencers.

Imagine Peace. Show Peace. Be Peace.

Armistice Day 2017

War is Over (If you want it)

Remember this song? It’s a favorite here at Released in 1971 as a protest of the Vietnam War, Happy Xmas (War is Over) goes, “So this is Christmas, And what have you done?”… As we approach Armistice Day and many remember the fallen and their sacrifice, we want to ask, gently, is it enough to just remember? honors all veterans, but we hold closely to the idea that Armistice Day is the end of war and the beginning of peace.

Current events seem to be driving, or perhaps more accurately reflecting, a willingness on the part of policy makers to engage in war (whether or not they legally declare it) therefore, it is more crucial than ever to push back in civil protest. Every day, protests by reporting on and curating other news sources’ stories about war activity around the globe. We believe that an informed population is an important step to countering the unchecked Military Industrial Complex that is driving our foreign policy.’s journalism and outspoken editorial practice has come at a price of increased agency scrutiny and government harassment, which we fought back against and won. We take this as a sign we are doing something right. Even though we take this risk, we want to insulate our supporters by looking at how we might offer our donors greater privacy and anonymity.
