Nonviolent Peaceforce featured in Christian Science Monitor

Nonviolent Peaceforce logo

“Recently a village on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines was under threat by two armed groups who had come within 200 meters of each other. The village elders called for help from the Nonviolent Peaceforce (nonviolentpeaceforce.org) stationed there, who intervened and by communicating with all sides persuaded the armed group to back away. Thanks to mediation, no violence erupted, no lives were lost.”

from Fight Violence with Nonviolence – Unarmed civilian peacekeepers are saving lives today, by Michael Nagler and Rolf Carriere, Christian Science Monitor, March 27, 2008.
