Action For Peace (AFP)

Our Mission

We are a working group comprised of various individuals intent upon the same long term goals: ending the wars, bringing the troops home, keeping "war dollars" available for use in the United States to rebuild infrastructure, educate our population, clean up the environment and maintain the earth as a viable, stable place for human life to coexist with all other forms of life, and to foster Peace throughout the world. 


The members of the AFP Working Group at Occupy Boston are dedicated to non-violent action and non-cooperation with violence in all of its forms, including immoral laws that impact our communities, the nation, and the world. We have decided upon the following points (open for discussion, removal, or new additions):

  • Complete nonpartisanship
  • Treating all people with dignity and respect
  • Support Occupy Boston and other Occupy movements
  • Maintain non-violence, peace is the active word
  • Act and Organize openly, honestly, and accountably
  • Communicate openly and effectively
  • Meet and collaborate with Working Groups
  • Ensure consistant communication toward attaining our goals

Upcoming Actions

St. Patrick's Day Peace Parade 

A People's Parade for Peace, Equality, Jobs, Social & Economic Justice

Sunday, March 18, 2012 @ 1:00pm: Join Veterans For Peace, the AFP Working Group, and other peace and social justice organizations for this historic alternative people’s parade following the official Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston. The parade will form up on D Street, between 1st Street and 3rd Street. We will have that entire area for staging, beginning at 1pm. We will march immediately following the “official parade.” We want to be ready to step off as soon as we are given the signal. Upon exiting the T Station walk four blocks east on West Broadway to D Street and make a left. The parade staging area is two short blocks from West Broadway.
