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.

Invitation to the Conscience AGM – September 8th

You are cordially invited to the Conscience Annual General Meeting on the 8th of September. After a short business meeting, we will review our progress over the last 12 months and begin to discuss our plans for the future of the Conscience campaign.

We will also be joined by special guest, Dr Tim Street, who is the author of the Conscience report Minister for Peace and Disarmament: An Assessment. 

Tim has conducted research and campaign work for groups including Campaign Against Arms Trade, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, Nuclear Information Service, BASIC and the Oxford Research Group.

We would love to hear your feedback on the findings of the report, especially as we move into the political conference season, where Conscience will be promoting the report at the national Labour and Green Party conferences.

Our campaign is built on the strength of our membership – I hope you will make your voice heard and shape how Conscience campaigns in the future.

Come and join us for a lively and informative discussion about the future of British foreign policy and how our taxes can build a more peaceful world.

A Massive Thank You to Our Supporters!

Thank You

Our appeal has had a particularly good response from our supporters this year – thank you all so much! Your money will go towards helping us campaign for the rights of conscientious objectors. This year we are focusing on our Taxes for Peace Bill, presented by Ruth Cadbury MP, which aims to allow conscientious objectors the option to divert their taxes from armaments and the military to peaceful methods of conflict resolution like mediation and diplomacy. Your support is integral to keeping our organisation running and campaigning so we shall say it again, thank you.

It is never too late to become one of our supporters. Click here to donate to Conscience.
