Resources from the 1980s Movement




      The Beyond War Movement began in 1982 as a citizen response to the (1) threat of global nuclear catastrophe, (2) growing awareness of our oneness and obsolescence of war, and (3) realization that only individuals working together could redirect history and build a world beyond war.
      In the 21st century this knowledge is equally important.
      Beyond War's history is described on the Web at http://www.globalcommunity.org/history.shtml.
      A contemporary expression of Beyond War is at http://www.beyondwar.org .
