conscience TAXES FOR PEACE NOT WAR, works for a world where taxes are used to nurture peace, not pay for war.
We campaign for a progressive increase in the amount of UK tax spent on peacebuilding, and a corresponding decrease in the amount spent on war and preparation for war. We also campaign for the legal right of those with a conscientious objection to war to have the entire military part of their taxes spent on peacebuilding.

The Conscience AGM is your opportunity to have a say over the long term future of Conscience. We are a member-led organisation and your input will be vital in determining where we go over the next few years.
We will also be looking at what we have achieved over the past 12 months, in what has been an incredible year for Conscience.
You can find out how to become more involved in our work by joining the Executive Committee (EC) and taking part in formal meetings four times a year in London.
The meeting will be held at Friends House near Euston. We have a formal agenda for the AGM and encourage you to come along and contribute. The floor will be opened up for questions, thoughts, and suggestions.
We would like to invite you to come along and tell us how you think we can best further our aims to see a world where taxes are used to nurture peace, instead of paying for war.
We hope to see as many of you as possible this Saturday.

This is why Conscience is looking to attend the International Peace Bureau (IPB) World Congress 2016 in Berlin, taking place from 30 September – 3 October, but it’s going to cost us £1,500 to attend so we need your help!
The aim of the congress is to bring the issue of military spending into the public domain and strengthen the global community of activism.
Our attendance to this congress is essential and will mean that we can:
- Train – to learn how to be better achieve social change from the best peacebuilding organisations in the world.
- Teach – to share our parliamentary knowledge with others.
- Network – to build relationships across the peace sector.
- Co-ordinate – to unite with other peace tax campaigners and be more effective in our campaigning.
