Last month, September 2018, Toronto was the site of an international peace conference, #NoWar2018, coordinated by the New York-based World Beyond War, sponsored or endorsed by dozens of other peace organizations including Canadian Voice of Women for Peace, Physicians for Global Survival, Science for Peace, and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. 

Peace organizations haven't been in the news much for a decade or so, even though the U.S. is entering its 18th year of war in Afghanistan. "The anti-war faction that mobilized against the Iraq war shrunk precipitously during the Obama years," observed The Atlantic writer Conor Friederdorf in May 2017, "and is less noisy as Trump takes office than anti-pipeline protesters."
