Click here for two dozen pictures mapping war and militarism and the struggle for peace overlaid on a global image of nations. These are drawn from — and you can create your own with — an online tool for mapping militarism published by World Beyond War at bit.ly/mappingmilitarism. This tool has just been updated with new data. On many of the maps at that link you can scroll back in time to see changes over recent years.

The presentation at http://worldbeyondwar.org/mapwar can also be found as a “prezi” (a variation on what’s more commonly called a powerpoint and used to be called a slide show). You can grab the prezi for your own use at the World Beyond War events resources page.
50,000 people have now pledged to work to end all war.
Let's share that and build momentum. Email everyone you know this link:
