Folder Peace Pill

Peace Pill

Peace Pill Videos celebrate those individuals and movements that struggle for peace, past and present, and educate us on a history that is intentionally left out of the official narrative about war and peace.

Because NNOMY recognizes that war and violence is a cultural illness, we feel the medicine to fight this disease is a Peace Pill.


default "Worth Fighting For" by Rory Fanning Popular

By 635 downloads

Pat Tillman's death by friendly fire was covered up just days before his comrade Rory Fanning—who served in the same unit as Tillman—left the Army Rangers as a conscientious objector. Disquieted by his tours in Afghanistan, Fanning sets out to honor Tillman's legacy by crossing the United States on foot.

Told with page-turning style, humor, and warmth, Worth Fighting For explores the emotional and social consequences of rejecting the mission of one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. It is only through the generous, and colorful people Fanning meets and the history he discovers that he learns to live again.

A Soldiers Life

This website and video are made for high school students to discourage them from enlisting in the military. All of the production staff who created the 10-minute video are students, ranging from middle school to college. The Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice and Veterans for Peace co-created the video with professional photographer and CCPJ Board member Richard Lord. Please feel free to share this with young people and their families.  It is hard to know what the coming years will hold in terms of war and peace; if we can save even one young person from being traumatized emotionally, physically, sexually or socially, then we are doing our job correctly.

Knitting the Network: JROTC in Schools Palm Card?


The following videos challenge the justifications for the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) programs to be located in US and US territory high schools. These programs number more than 4000 in high schools nationally representing Army, Navy, and Air Force, (Now Space Force). The U.S. Army's JROTC program currently operates in more than 1,700 public and private high schools, military institutions, and correctional centers throughout the United States and overseas.

The Knitting the Network: JROTC in Schools Palm Card document is to be used for counter-recruitment in high and middle schools and its QR codes and links direct students, teachers, and parents to the following Youtube videos:

  1. Should JROTC be in schools?
  2. Is JROTC a Character Education program?

  3. Teaching Marksmanship in Schools?

This document offers four palm cards in black and white version in PDF format for printing and cutting into four sized palm cards | Cheap Printing

The videos utilize the imagery and practice of knitting as a non-invasive theme to discuss a controversial subject of military indoctrination programs in our schools that have the ultimate goal of generating military recruits once these cadets finish high school. The rate of those who complete four years of JROTC entering into the armed forces is about 40%.

These videos were produced in the NNOMY southern office in 2018.

default Latinos become focus for US army recruitment - 10 Oct 07 Popular

By 4055 downloads

LBF US ArmyThe US military says it has met its recruitment goals for 2007. However, signing new soldiers is getting more difficult, with an unpopular war in Iraq and open-ended commitments both there and in Afghanistan.

New figures reveal there has been a 40 per cent drop in African-Americans signing up for the army. The Pentagon wants to expand the size of the army to 547,000 soldiers by the year 2010, and are counting on Hispanics to fill the gap. To do so, recruiters are turning to incentives to bolster their numbers. Mike Kirsch explores the sometimes questionable tactics being used to entice Latino recruits into the US army.

By 3255 downloads

MMPCMilitainment, Inc. offers a fascinating, disturbing, and timely glimpse into the militarization of American popular culture, examining how U.S. news coverage has come to resemble Hollywood film, video games, and “reality television” in its glamorization of war. Mobilizing an astonishing range of media examples – from news anchors’ idolatry of military machinery to the impact of government propaganda on war reporting – the film asks: How has war taken its place in the culture as an entertainment spectacle?And how does presenting war as entertainment affect the ability of citizens to evaluate the necessity and real human costs of military action? The film is broken down into nine sections, each between 10 and 20 minutes in length, allo wing for in-depth classroom analysis of individual elements of this wide-ranging phenomenon.
