The Peace Report (TPR) was created to help educate the public about the problems surrounding militarism. TPR will utilize social media, audio, and video to educate the public on issues surrounding militarism, wars, conflicts, & the effects of military spending. TPR also aims in uniting antiwar organizations and the public to fight back against militarism. War is the not the solution to the problems of the 21st century.
TPR will also focus on economic, political, cultural, and environmental issues because we recognize that all things are connected. In order to achieve real peace, we need a world that gives people access to resources, autonomy and freedom, a clean environment, and a fair and just economic and political system.
One difference between TPR and other independent news organizations is that we participate in the nonviolent resistance against these issues as well as cover the stories. But for now, here’s some information to start you off…
