About PeaceworkersPeaceworkers is a community of activists, based primarily in the San Francisco Bay area, working to nurture peace, justice, reconciliation, and nonviolence in the world today.
We live in a world deeply addicted to violence and war, resulting in massive devastation to human life, the natural environment and the hopes and dreams of future generations. In the face of this destruction, millions of people around the world are experimenting with powerful and effective nonviolent tools to break the rules of war. We, the world’s people, need to learn more about these lessons and join together to foster more of these successful nonviolent responses to the world’s most pressing challenges.
Waging Peace – New Book by David HartsoughDavid Hartsough knows how to get in the way! He has used his body to block Navy ships headed for Vietnam and trains loaded with munitions on their way to El Salvador and Nicaragua. He has crossed borders to meet “the enemy” in East Berlin, Castro’s Cuba, and present-day Iran. He has marched with mothers confronting a violent regime in Guatemala and stood with refugees threatened by death squads in the Philippines.
