About 12seconds for Peace

'12seconds for Peace' is a collaborative video-arts project, designed to raise the energy of manifestation for peace on our planet and in our individual hearts and minds. When humanity manifests internal peace and recognises the natural order of the human condition, then peace in the world will follow. The proceeds from 12seconds for Peace will go to support and aid the various good causes of a number of charitable and non-profit organisations around the world.

12seconds for Peace - Elizeth Labega - 2

Peace is our goal - war is not the answer. So says Janet Jacquier in a new video from Elizeth Labega at the Monterey Peace Rally in California that took place on November 13th 2010. Peace is something that we all need to strive for, however we define it.

Get involved, in whatever way that you can in pushing for peace. Peace groups exist all over the world and they are all asking for the same thing: the end to violence against our fellow human beings and the establishment of peace for all. It can be done, but we need to insist on it and make it happen.

One way that you can get involved is by making your own 12seconds for Peace video and sending to: 12seconds4peace@gmail.com

12seconds for Peace - Judith Gigg

Judith Gigg has been a firm supporter of 12seconds for Peace for some time now and having had a number of technical problems over the last few months, it seemed as if we would never receive her much-promised video. But as a testament to her belief in this project and all that it is trying to do, she recently came through with her promised statement for peace video.

Judith has been a counsellor for the past twenty six years and is a member of the British Psychological Society and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. She devotes a great deal of her time to helping those in need - particularly young people.

You can find out more about her work here at: Open Palm.

Here is a wonderful little video from Clare Brumby and the crew of Clare Makes Films originally called 'Peace Process'. Clare noted 

"'Peace Process' is a stop-motion animation that shows the construction on an origami peace crane which illustrates that peace is a never-ending process.The short was made by the crew at clare makes films and in its original format it was used as a trailer for our 'Peace Talks' chat show that took place on November 1st 2010 at the 'Bed-in at the Bluecoat,' a 60-day bed-in style protest commemorating the famous bed-in's by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969. Our non-violent peace protest championed the cause of dialogue in avoiding and resolving conflict through our chat show 'Peace Talks.'"
