World Peace Week sign now

Petition of Concerned Citizens
to their Governments and Media
for Relief from the Instigation of Wars,
and to this end, for a World Peace Week
to be observed each year from Nov. 5th to 11th.

Given, that

The world community, the peoples of the United States, the United Kingdom, and all other nations of our planet, desire peace and abhor war;

The recent atrocity of illegal wars on Afghanistan and Iraq forced upon the world community by deceit and blackmail has exploded the myth that modern wars, even those waged by developed nations, erupt from spontaneous and natural causes;

Current and historical research never fails to unearth evidence showing each of the major and minor wars of the modern great powers to be the fruits of concerted machinations by aggressive and powerful elites;

The brief listing in the appendix shows that one of their most effective means of instigating wars and pretexts of wars is the engineering of real or fake provocations and symbolic attacks on their own citizenry;

This criminal tradition has continued uninterrupted and undisturbed for at least 400 years in the English-speaking world, since the hatching of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605, which is still celebrated in Britain as Guy Fawkes Day, Nov. 5th, without the great majority of English people ever learning that the plot originated with their own government;

Extensive influence over media and formal education by the aforementioned clique has kept us, the world's people almost entirely ignorant of these true facts about war;

Our peace movements have thus been largely ineffectual, as good intentions with ignorance have never been a match for a cunning hold on the levers of power, and indeed, problems are not solved without knowledge of their causes, nor by attempts to prevent them in the abstract, without identifying their authors;

Our society has been indoctrinated to glorify war and despise peace, as exemplified by the presence of six holidays of a martial character on the US calendar, without a single holiday dedicated to peace;

The accelerating military adventures and wizardry of mass destruction in the hands of a visibly irresponsible faction represent a grave and present danger to the survival of the majority of us, the world's people,

So that the safety of the human race can no longer be secured by blind trust in such self-appointed leaders and spokesmen, but only by the most widespread understanding of these grave facts,

We therefore, in view of these urgent and grievous matters, require and hereby

P E T I T I O N

That the week from November 5th to November 11th be named National Peace Week respectively World Peace Week by the Congress of the United States, the Parliament of the United Kingdom, the General Assembly of the United Nations, and its constituent governments, in recognition of the true significance behind the holidays celebrated on November 5th, Guy Fawkes Day in the UK and November 11th, Veterans Day in the US;

That the members of the educational and media professions celebrate and promote this Peace Week, and encourage discussion of the facts set forth in this petition,

That the world's governments secure peace for their people by building bridges of neighborly and mutual trust between nations, and reduce their military and secret service establishments to the minimum, securing us from abuses and dangers and loss of freedoms;

That the US and UK governments withdraw their occupying forces without further procrastination from the territories of Iraq and Afghanistan;

And we address this petition to the following worthy entities, to whom the signed petition shall be delivered:

Members of Congress of the United States, Members of Parliament of the United Kingdom, and Delegates to the United Nations;

As well as by way of broad means of publication to:

Educators

Representatives of the World's Print and Electronic Media

The Individuals and Organizations who support Peace and oppose War.
