Aotearoa – New Zealand
a nuclear free pioneer for peace.

Aotearoa – New Zealand has a long history of peace leadership including: non-violent peace-making traditions of Moriori, Parihaka and other indigenous communities; being the first country to grant women the vote; being the first and only country to have a Minister for Disarmament; adopting peace studies in the school curriculum; developing mechanisms for the peaceful resolution of past injustices to Maori (indigenous people) and other ethnic communities; prohibiting nuclear weapons; and promoting the United Nations.

However, there is still violence and injustice that needs to be addressed. Every year in New Zealand 40,000 violent crimes are reported, over 100 murders are committed and 7,000 children are abused in the home. Nearly 30% of women have reported being subjected to physical or sexual violence. Violence around the world also needs to be addressed – whether it be the violence of poverty, civil disputes, wars or the threat of annihilation with nuclear weapons.
