School for Peace: Understanding Global Militansm

Rosemary Cooke — July 1984

The 13th annual Grindstone Island School for Peace will ‘be “held from Sunday August 12 through till Thursday August 16, 1984. The intention of the School for Peace is to offer an opportunity for those who have recently become involved to broaden their understanding or analysis of peace issues, to develop their skills for effective peace work, to share their ideas and exPeriences with others, and to learn about nonviolent alternatives.

The theme for this session of the School for Peace is Solidarity: North-South; East- West. The School’s planning committee decided that this year is a critical one for understanding the reality of global militarism, and for developing solidarity with independent peace and resistance movements around the world.

During the four day session, experienced resource people will discuss topics including, an overview of the connections between militarism, underdevelopment and human oppression, an in-depth investigation of a current global “hot spot,” a look at the EastWest dimension of the arms race, an exploration of practical skills for peace work such as working together in a group, decision making processes, agenda setting, facilitating meetings and a workshop in popular education.

The School for Peace will provide ample opportunity each day for group and informal discussions and question periods. A couple of films on related topics will also be shown and there will be an abundance of literature and printed materials available.

Resource people will include representatives from Eastern European and Latin American solidarity groups; Lee Cormie, professor at St. Michael’s College, University of Toronto, Marsha Sfeir of Christian Movement for Peace; Margaret Boake- Hancock, International Women’s Day Committee; Rosemary Cooke of the Cruise Missile Conversion Project and Juliette Huntley, member of Project Ploughshares.

Registration is limited and will be confirmed on a first cornel first served basis. For further information please contact: Grindstone Co-op, P.O. Box 564, Station P, Toronto, On., M5S 2Tl. Telephone (416) xxx-xxxx.
