Waging Peace

  • Peace Action New Mexico
    Peace Action is committed to abolishing nuclear weapons and all weapons of mass destruction, redirecting excessive military expenditures to domestic investment, ending global weapons trafficking, preventing the erosion of civil liberties both in this country and elsewhere, preventing the militarization of space, and fostering non-military solutions to international conflicts. We are grassroots, member-supported not-for-profit organization whose volunteers and dedicated staff work at local, state, national, and international levels.

    Recent events have confirmed that the American political establishment is not united in support of the Bush Administration's policy of forcible "regime change" in Iraq. The rest of the world, and a good part of the American public, also seem unconvinced of the necessity of an attack.

  • Military Opt Out Form For Students
    For students who do NOT want their high schools to provide the US Military with their birth date, address, social security number for recruitment purposes, please print out the form and deliver it to your principal. Getting a signed receipt of acceptance is also a good idea.

  • Los Alamos Study Group
    The Los Alamos Study Group seeks nuclear disarmament, environmental protection and enhancement, social justice, and economic sustainability goals which are closely interrelated, mutually reinforcing, and essential to one another. These goals are very widely supported in American society and we construe them as essentially conservative, however revolutionary they would be in actual practice.

    We aim not only to change public policy but also to prevent the implementation of bad policies. The latter is often easier to achieve; it comprises de facto policy change and often leads to de jure change.

    The central ideal in these four goals can be stated approximately as respect for the human person in the living landscape. Such an ideal is as intellectually, morally, economically, and politically incompatible with nuclear weapons as it is necessary for economic, social, and spiritual renewal in this state and nationally.

  • Bringing Back the Draft?

  • A Young PeaceMaker
    Marla Ruzicka is an advocate who began a door-to-door survey of civilian casualties in Iraq the day after Saddam's statue fell. She founded the non-profit organization, CIVIC, Campaign for Innocent Victims In Conflict, and formed survey teams to fan-out across the country and gather first-hand accounts of civilian casualties.
    CIVIC is a small organization working to obtain U.S. Government assistance for communities and families in need, while helping to shine a spotlight on the human costs of war.
    The humanitarian situation in Iraq remains serious. CIVIC seeks to mitigate the impact of the conflict and its aftermath on the people of Iraq by ensuring that timely and effective life-saving assistance is provided to those in need. We have kept the stories of families harmed in both Iraq and Afghanistan on the agenda both on the ground and in the halls of Congress. In the short time we have been operating, we have succeeded in putting laws in place that will assist those we identified in our field survey work.
