Young gamers are already playing in virtual invasions of Iran and Iranians are commonly shown as brutal savages. Meanwhile real covert operations are taking place, ordinary Iranians are suffering the consequences of ever more brutal sanctions and politicians talk not so much of whether violence should be used, but rather what kind of violence might be more “useful”: further sanctions, further assassinations, backing local terrorist groups such as MKO and Jundallah, bombing or even full scale invasion.
The assertions of a crisis are vague and often based upon hearsay amplified by political leaders and sensationalist journalism. Unless checked they may become a self-fulfilling prophecy as tensions heat up.
The words Now Ruz, or New Day, perhaps act as a call to reflection and a rethink of our ideas and prejudices (remember the origin of the word is “pre-judgement” - to judge before one knows).

Academic talks

In the name of peace, in opposition to war, the panel joins three dots. Our dots are three of the defining faculties of humanity, language, mathematics and imagery. The panel will argue that human rights are not just something to be upheld, to the point of death for some, but now coming within the domain of science and logic. One key aspect of the scientific advances here will be demonstrated using apparatus, never before seen in public. But advances have been not just made, but lost. That is just part of why our panel is for peace, not war.

'THESE THREE SIMPLE TRUTHS': http://www.ucl.ac.uk/chc/people/klaus-abels" href="http://www.ucl.ac.uk/chc/people/klaus-abels" target="_blank" avglsprocessed="1" style="color:rgb(17, 85, 204)">Dr KLAUS ABELS</span></span></span></b><span size="3" face="Calibri" style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;"><span style="font-size: 12pt;"> will give a brief glimpse of the amazingly simple system underlying the variation in neutral word order across all human languages. The system appears to be shared by all humans and, like our linguistic faculty more generally, partly characterizes us as humans; <b><span style="text-decoration: underline;">http://www.courtauld.ac.uk/people/stallabrass-julian.shtml" href="http://www.courtauld.ac.uk/people/stallabrass-julian.shtml" target="_blank" avglsprocessed="1" style="color:rgb(17, 85, 204)">Professor JULIAN STALLABRASS</span></span></span></b><span size="3" face="Calibri" style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;"><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><span color="#3333ff" style="color: #3333ff;"> will tell us how modern media allow the 'enemy' to speak back directly to those whose governments wage war; and Professor GEORGE GHEVERGHESE JOSEPH who will help us join the three dots.

 

 

Nowruz No War will show that from ancient times to now, Iran has been part of our intellectual and scientific development.

 

An attack on Iran would be an attack on our history – possibly non-recoverable.

 

Peace

 

What is Peace?

Peace is more than the absence of war; real peace comes from our hearts (Inner peace) and leads to peaceful relations in the family and community and among nations.

Let’s inspire others with non-violence every day….

Let’s be messengers of peace in every interaction.

     Tehran peace museum

     

    Tehran peace Museum is a member of the International Network of Museums for Peace. the main objective of the museum is to promote a culture of peace through raising awareness about the devastating consequences of war with focus on health and environmental impacts of Chemical weapons.

     

    Currently housed in a building donated by the municipality of Tehran within the historic City Park, the Tehran Peace Museum is as much an interactive peace center as a museum.

     

    On June 29, 2007, a memorial for the poison gas victims of the Iran-Iraq War (1980–88), along with a Peace Museum, was completed in a park in Tehran, the capital of Iran. These facilities were established by the Society for Chemical Weapons Victims Support (an Iranian NGO), the city of Tehran, some other NGOs, and individuals and groups in Hiroshima.

     

    The museum coordinates a peace education program that holds workshops on humanitarian law, disarmament, tolerance, and peace education. At the same time, it hosts conferences on the culture of peace, reconciliation, international humanitarian law, disarmament, and peace advocacy.

     

    Additionally, the museum houses a documentary studio that provides a workspace wherein the individual stories of victims of warfare can be captured and archived for the historical record. The museum’s peace library includes a collection of literature spanning topics from international law to the implementation of peace to oral histories of veterans and victims of war.

     

    Permanent and rotating peace-related art exhibitions displaying the work of amateur international and Iranian artists and children's drawings are also housed in the museum complex. Finally, the Iranian secretariat for the international organization Mayors for Peace is housed in the Tehran Peace Museum.

Focus on Survivors' Involvement

Focus on Survivors' Involvement

"Their burnt eyes and their coughs express their suffering more eloquently than any words"

While visiting the Hiroshima Peace Museum the founders of the Tehran Peace Museum realized the necessity of involving the victims of war in the creation of the museum. Only these individuals could provide credible accounts of the harsh realities of war and their correlating desire for peace.

What is a Peace Museum?

What is a Peace Museum?

When you first hear of a "Peace museum" you may be slightly mystified or perhaps even a bit skeptical. It is easy to imagine what goes into a war museum but what can you put in a peace museum? And if the peace movement is to be represented in a museum does that mean it is being relegated to the past?

Founding the Iranian Peace Museum

Founding the Iranian Peace Museum

Its founding began with a conversation between the founder of the Tehran-based Society for Chemical Weapons Victims support (SCWVS) and a coordinator for the international Peace Museums Network in 2005. This, as well as a visit to Hiroshima, Japan by members of SCWVS a year before, prompted the desire for a museum in Tehran.
