World Peace Day, 21 September 2014: the Peace Not War music project has now been relaunched, after 6 six years' hibernation. A new not-for-profit organization has been established as a foundation for a new strategy appropriate for the age of digital music distribution and social media. Peace Not War has the world's largest collection of pro-peace/anti-war songs, and intends to release this music as a resource for the education, inspiration and activation of a new generation of peace activists. The new agenda will incorporate environmentalism and foster an alliance between the peace movement and the green movement, because militarism and its greed for fossil fuels is not only killing people, it's destroying our planet too.

 

HISTORY:

 

February 15th 2003: the biggest protest action in human history. Over 15 million people, in over 60 cities around the world, protested against the military invasion of Iraq. 2002-2007 was also the most prolific period of protest song recording in history, and the Peace Not War music project was the focus for these recordings. Peace Not War responded to the destructive "War On Terror" with creativity and positivity. A network of Peace Not War bands in the UK staged dozens of concerts in clubs, squats, and at protest gatherings.

 

A handful of activists with no experience in the music industry set up Peace Not War in an East London living room and requested submissions for a fundraising compilation CD. The project escalated as rapidly as the public feelings about the slaughter of innocent civilians. Over 500 bands offered their songs freely.

 

Releasing radical music to educate the mainstream, and inspiring peace activists with sonic energy, Peace Not War was the soundtrack to the peace movement. 7 compilation albums have been released. Over quarter of a millions CDs were distributed in 21 countries.  All proceeds from CD sales were donated to a wide spectrum of peace activist organizations.

 

Peace Not War Vol. 2 is considered to be the finest protest song compilation ever released, and the collection of protest songs submitted to Peace Not War is the world's largest, but this awesome archive of music has been unavailable for years. Check out some of the artists involved...

FUTURE:

 

Peace Not War is building a new multimedia website which will be a hub for the distribution of pro-peace/anti-war songs from around the world. These songs will be made available to the public for free, to educate people about the war machine and the possibilities for creating peace on Earth, to inspire people to take positive actions in their lives towards making peace. The website will provide practical resources for people to manifest their intentions into action, as well as a platform for individuals to tell their personal stories of making peace. The relaunched project will feature fresh graphic design, and will come out with a documentary about the history and philosophy of this radical cultural phenomenon.

 

 

HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT THIS PROJECT:
