War is not the solution to the problems we face
in the 21st century
Veterans for Peace (VFP) was founded in the United States of America in 1985 and has over 100 chapters in the USA and a growing number of international chapters.
Veterans for Peace UK (VFP UK) was founded in London in 2011.
Veterans For Peace UK is a voluntary and politically independent ex-services organisation of men and women who have served in conflicts from WW2 through to Afghanistan.
As a result of our collective experiences we firmly believe that “War is not the solution to the problems we face in the 21st century”.
We are not a pacifist organisation; we accept the inherent right of self-defence in response to an armed attack.
We work to influence the foreign and defence policy of the UK, for the larger purpose of world peace.
We urge all veterans who share this vision to join us.
