From November 5th -- Guy Fawkes Day, the holiday that celebrates the grand-daddy of all fake war provocations -- the 400th anniversary was in 2005 --
through November 11th, Veterans Day: It commemorates the end of WWI on 11/11/1918, and the veterans and victims of this and all the other wars started by false pretexts.
To end these wars, we have to awaken people to both the knowledge of how the war party incites war, and to sympathy for the fallen. These dates in November are a perfect time to remember both culprits and victims.
This International Peace Week is a spontaneous networking of activists, authors and media. It's a focus to arrange interviews and calls in to talk radio, letters to the editor, articles and chats online, and your own local conferences, meetings, demonstrations.
Or send a Peace Greeting Card for Holidays around the year. There is an especially strong link here with Halloween, and we have created a number of cards for the spooky holiday. Guy Fawkes Day is the closest thing to Halloween in Britain, and Nov. 11 is the European version called Fasching, when people dress in costumes. And there is something demonic about the forces behind war, too. Halloween is actually the eve of All Saints, Nov. 1, a reverent holiday for remembering the dead, all our loved ones, and not just the military dead; this day of remembering has been forgotten in America.

Why Celebrate World Peace Week
from Nov. 5th to Nov. 11th.
It may be hard to believe, but there is no widely recognized day, week or month for Peace on the US, UK or world calendars.
The number of martial ones keeps growing, though. The US alone has half a dozen: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Patriot Day (hopefully not named after the "Patriot Act," also born on Sept. 11th), Veterans' Day and Pearl Harbor Day.
There is no National Peace Month, Week or Day at all in the US - only occasional
observations of the UN's International Peace Day.
It calls for a 24-hour ceasefire - and one minute of silence. Hmm... Even if it works and
the world gets a minute of peace and quiet -
How many people will be killed by war during the other 525,599 minutes of the year?
