Project Abstract

The Voices Against War website is one component of an educational peace project, “Pacifist Women, Men and their Families in Canterbury” co-ordinated by the Disarmament and Security Centre (DSC) in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Our aim was to identify, research and publicise in a range of forms, the stories of women, men and their families throughout Canterbury who opposed conscription and militarism, supported the conscientious objectors (COs), and campaigned for a new world order before during and after World War I.
