Peace Pill

Peace Pill Videos celebrate those individuals and movements that struggle for peace, past and present, and educate us on a history that is intentionally left out of the official narrative about war and peace.

Because NNOMY recognizes that war and violence is a cultural illness, we feel the medicine to fight this disease is a Peace Pill.

default Climate Action for Peace - International Day of Peace Popular

By 584 downloads

This International Day of Peace, we look at the US military's toxic legacy on our planet. We encourage young people: if you want to help stop climate change, look for careers paths outside the US military. Not only can they be harmful to you and others in direct ways, but the infrastructure that supports war also supports the depletion and outright destruction of many of the world's precious natural resources, and of our futures.

default DEBUNKING RECRUITMENT MYTHS: Project YANO

By 13 downloads

Because of the on-going military offensives in different parts of the world, the different branches of the US Military have is mounting an equally aggressive campaign to get young people to enlist. Recruiters in schools and college campuses leverage the benefits that the US military could provide to young people as a way to convince them to sign an eight year contract that could have potentially damaging and deadly consequences. Counter-Recruitment projects like Project YANO (Project on Youth and Non-Military Opportunities) attempts to make these consequences clear to young people, and to dispel many of the myths and half-truths recruiters often tell potential enlistees. The goal of counter-recruitment is not to force young people away from military careers, but instead to provide them with a clearer picture of what they will actually entail. http://projectyano.org/

default Hiroshima and the Blameless Victims of War: Sadako Sasaki Popular

By 569 downloads

The ones who suffer the most during war is not the ones who wage it, but the ones caught in the middle. The poor, the powerless, the innocents whose only "crime" was being at the wrong place, at the wrong time. We want to remember their stories so their tragedies never repeat.

default Martin Luther King's Legacy - Peace Pill

By 35 downloads

We honor Martin Luther King by recovering his antiwar and anti-militarist legacy. In this time of unprecedented political hypocrisy, we see the utilization of Doctor King's words usurped by the militaristic and nationalistic Trump administration and a twisted and ironic usurpation of his ideals by military contractors in the United States of America in this last holiday honoring him. This Peace Pill is the remedy to this public relations illness.

default Opt out of war!: Granny Peace Brigade Popular

By 584 downloads

History of the Granny Peace Brigade and a focus on their Counter-recruitment activism. A group of women went to the Times Square recruitment center on October 17th, 2005 to enlist. We asked to enlist in place of grandchildren who had been deployed in Iraq unnecessarily. We were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Instead of accepting an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal (ACD), we decided to go to court to defend our civil right to speak out. While planning the court case we became determined to work together to end the war in Iraq. To do this, we needed an identity and a name; we became the Granny Peace Brigade. It was as members of the newly formed Granny Peace Brigade that we were tried in NYC Criminal Court and acquitted.

default Peace Mom: Cindy Sheehan

By 11 downloads

Cindy Sheehan has been an influential voice in the Peace Movement for three presidencies. However, what was it that drove her to activism? We believe her story to be one of the examples of how the counter-recruitment organizations within NNOMY (The National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth) is motivated by a desire to avoid the human suffering that participating in war can entail.

By 552 downloads

To commemorate the International Day for Conscientious Objection, we talk about three (four, if you count St. Maximilian) COs in US history. We hope to emphasize that objecting to a war is not done out of cowardice--on the contrary, the sacrifice can be so high that it is among the highest forms of bravery possible.

default White Supremacy and Apartheid: Contextualizing Mandela Popular

By Tagged in white-supremecy 568 downloads

White supremacy is unavoidably tied to militarism and militarization. From the way the military takes advantage of the precarious situation many people of color find themselves in to draw them into their ranks (as evidenced by the disproportionate amount of people of color within each branch of the military, compared to the total population of the United States), to the justifications that make war and military interventions possible. To commemorate this Nelson Mandela International day, we firmly take a stand against the dehumanization of others in any form.
