Countdown to #NoWar2020, May 26-31, Ottawa, Canada
#NoWar2020, World BEYOND War’s 5th global convergence, is coming up on May 29-30 in Ottawa. #NoWar2020 is unlike any conference we’ve organized before.
#1: We’re timing the conference to coincide with CANSEC, Canada’s biggest weapons expo, to bring international attention to Canada’s complicity in the global arms trade.
#2: The May 29-30 conference is part of a week-long series of events, starting May 26, including nonviolence action training, art-making workshops, film screenings, and of course, the protests at CANSEC, the weapons expo.
#3: #NoWar2020 is the product of a truly global effort. We’re working hand-in-hand with dozens of allies, including 350.org, the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space, and Canadian Voice of Women for Peace, to pull together this week of education and nonviolent action.
Join us at #NoWar2020!

Volunteer Spotlight: Joseph Essertier
This week’s volunteer spotlight features Joseph Essertier, WBW’s Japan chapter coordinator. “The problem of war is a relatively new problem in the long period during which Homo sapiens has roamed the Earth…Society, culture, technology, etc. are constantly changing, so the challenges we face are constantly changing. And we need your ideas and actions in order for us all to find a way forward, one that goes ‘beyond’ the institution and habit of war.”
Free Webinar: The Age of Hybrid Warfare
War is more than bombs and bullets. Join us on March 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET for a discussion of the new age of “hybrid warfare” – a mix of disinformation, sanctions, and unconventional tactics. We will 1) define what hybrid warfare is, and 2) discuss case studies of hybrid warfare in Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and elsewhere. This webinar is co-hosted by World BEYOND War in partnership with About Face: Veterans Against the War.
