Our Vision ...
The Peace Party seeks to promote a society that is compassionate and respectful, and that values cooperation over competition.
A compassionate society
A compassionate society is generous towards its weaker and more needy members. It seeks to ameliorate their condition and to provide both material and moral support.
A respectful society
A society whose members respect one another feels less threatened by differences in religion, lifestyle, and politics, and is more able to 'live and let live.' Nor will a society that has respect for others be willing to go to war.
Co-operation is better than competition
Competition would play a smaller part in a society whose members were aware and supportive of the needs and aspirations of others.

... for a better world
The world as we know
it is far from ideal. Of course we realise nothing can ever be perfect,
but there is no reason not to try to improve things as much as we can.
Here are some of the characteristics of the kind of world we would like to
1. Conflict would always be resolved by non-violent means: killing each other is no way to settle differences, and war is always wrong.
2. Everyone would be involved in making the decisions that affect their lives.
There would be appropriate health care and freedom of choice for all.
3. There would be safe and peaceful homes for everyone.
4. People would be able to live in harmony with one another and their natural and man-made surroundings.
5. Everyone would have access to justice.
6. Everyone would have freedom and opportunity to learn and to study, helping empower themselves and their communities.
7. Everyone would have meaningful work and an assured income without exploitation or oppression.
8. Everyone would have leisure time and easy access to facilities for creativity and recreation.

Voting for Peace!
By voting for any of of the traditional parties you are, whether you want to or not, endorsing our country's militarism, and our interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Mali. We don't think this is right! We think you should be able to tell the Government that there is a better way.
Help us to to bring our vision of a better and more peaceful world closer, by voting for the Peace Party at future elections.
