    I believe that peace keeping missions have become a farce & increasingly a cover up for imperialism & greed!
    We place our young idealistic citizens at risks that they do not anticipate & often wreck their lives – if not kill them

    As a peace activist, I am extremely reluctant to wholeheartedly endorse Canadian participation in UN peacekeeping missions. Wearing a blue helmet does not automatically ensure peace and social justice. A recent example of the corruption of the UN peacekeeping model was the occupation of Haiti by the UN following the US-Canadian-French overthrow of the democratically elected government of Jean-Paul Aristide in 2004.

    To give a blank cheque to the UN would be naive at best. I hope Ceasefire.ca will reconsider this campaign. There are many creative, nonviolent ways that countries can work for peace. To argue that we should put our troops at the disposal of an international body that has proven to be a tool of imperialist powers is not what Canadians should be asking of their government.

    I have marched for the abolition of nuclear weapons for over 40 years,perhaps we did humanity a good turn in the 80s when they abolished the intermediate range nuclear weapons. (8,00,000 showed up in NY June 1982. Now more and more people around the world feel that:this is the time to ban nuclear weapons forever. Let’s make this dream come true.

    Why bother with all those weapons, if you want to kill someone just take all that yucky oilsand from Alberta and throw it in the faces of George Bush or whoever else wants to kill for oil

    I always like to use neutral nations as example for peace and neutrality – such as Sweden, Switzerland and Austria, just to name three. No NATO, no nuclear weapons and no dependence on a superpower.

    I think it unlikely that the US or Israel will give up the use of the nuclear threat at this time, no matter public opinion. Neither is in my opinion a “deep” democracy; the elites that rule cherish too dearly their “nuclear deterrent”.

    Yes it’s the time to understand that our generation is considering that killing/violence is wrong action and that we’ve to teach preparing the New Generation to live in Peace & loving each other with generosity and helping each other,
    Therefore it’s NOT NEEDED Existence of NATO & let vote for Non-proliferation , Nuclear abolition, Nuclear disarmament, Nuclear weapons and all types of the Mass Destruction Weapons.
