Who we are – Contacts

Rete Italiana Pace e Disarmo (Italian Peace and Disarmament Network) was born on September 21, 2020 from the unification of two historical bodies of the Italian peace and disarmament movement: the Peace Network (founded in 2014) and the Italian Disarmament Network (founded in 2004). Both networks have been able to count since their foundation on the support of dozens of associations, organizations, trade unions, movements of the Italian civil society.

The purpose is to create peace together starting from the union of our forces and common goals, and strengthening the collective work for peace and disarmament. It was for us a natural outlet and a further stage of a long journey that has seen us work together on a number of issues and campaigns at the international level (Stop Bombs to Yemen, NO F-35, Non-Armed and Non-Violent Civil Defense, nuclear disarmament with ICAN in suèpprto of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, IoAccolgo, Peace Right Justice in Israel/Palestine, for the reduction of military expenditures, for the control of arms exports and the defense of Law 185/90, for civil peace interventions in ongoing conflicts, the Control Arms campaign, the ENAAT network, the Stop Killer Robots campaign, INEW campaign against explosive weapons).

Starting from September 21, 2020, the new common “working place” has become concrete in order to move forward together on what has been done and what still remains to be done, to give voice to the experiences of civil and nonviolent resistance and to set new common goals. A commitment and a work that we hope you will all support.
