elcome to the Comox Valley Peace Group's web site. The CVPG was first formed in the mid-70s and has been active ever since. The majority of the content of this website was first published back in 2003 when the US was just preparing to launch the Iraq War. We'll leave this older content here as it is a pretty good historical record of the beginnings of this awful war.

Please visit this site frequently as we'll be keeping you updated with the local news and announcements from the CVPG.

Are you lonely? Are you sick and tired of watching the generals on TV and want to say "NO" to war? Do you want to get involved in the local peace movement? Click HERE to send an email to the Comox Valley Peace Group to find out how you can get involved and help us.

The Need for a Strong Peace Movement

There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.
Constant Conflict, from Parameters, US Army War College.
