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.

European Parliamentary Elections 22nd May, 2014
In the South-East England Region, the Peace Party was the only one of three that saw an increase in its vote over the 2009 election. The Peace Party obtained 10,310 votes (0.43% of all those cast and thus lost its deposit). However, it did poll more than five of the other 14 parties. The turnout was abyssmal at 35.4%. (Thus, one could be cynical and say that the only "winners" in this election were those who chose not to vote. The party with the most seats only attracted about 12% of the total electorate. Hardly "winners"!)
A summary of the results and
full analysis is on the Southampton Council website.
