MORE ABOUT NP


The Nonviolent Peaceforce International LOGO shows birds of different colors, symbolizing the diversity of nationality, spirituality, language and ability which exists among our members. Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) professional unarmed peacekeepers work on the BLUE GLOBE of EARTH in a spirit of NONPARTISANSHIP, with love and respect for all concerned parties. Mahatma Gandhi demanded these virtues of his followers, and they are required of all NP representatives.

Nonviolent Peaceforce San Diego (NPSD) exists for the purpose of supporting Nonviolent Peaceforce, and to inform our fellow San Diegans about continuing NP work - since 2003 in Sri Lanka, since 2007 in the Philippines, 2007-2008 in Guatemala. New work in southern Sudan began in 2009. An advanced study group is working in the South Caucasus.

Nonviolent Peaceforce policy states that no new deployments will take place until at least one year's funding is in the bank, in order to cover ALL existing and pending projects. From the beginning, NP has depended on the generosity of individuals and groups who have recognized the value and feasibility of Third Party Nonviolent Conflict Intervention, which is one of NP's main approaches to peacekeeping, preventing death, deterring violence, and protecting human rights. Every recruitment for NP field Team Members has drawn 15 or more applications for each opening. NP growth has been phenomenal and must be supported by equally phenomenal publicity and funding.
