When Justice becomes Injustice,
Resistance becomes a Responsibility!



is an independent internationally active organisation.
It was founded in Vienna in 2003

Resistance for Peace is engaged for human rights, animal rights and the protection of the environment.

We are helping people and animals by using different approaches: political campaigns, direct relief or aid-projects as well as non-violent direct actions & protests.

Meanwhile the earth's population has grown to about 6,5 billion, tendency: rising fast. Approximately one billion is cut-off from any supplies with drinking water. 800 million people are constantly starving.


The time has come where decisions have to be made:

  • keeping on with plundering resources for the benefit of a few
  • pushing forward the industrialisation as before- surely killing the biosphere, causing tremendous destruction; both ecological and economical


  • take new paths and
  • find alternatives

Reasons for existing nuisances
A civil countermovement is emerging


Every one of us has responsibility and power as well, as voter or consumer.
Take action and join us! Get active!

Give us information (if u wish confidential) about: Arbitrariness of public authorities or justice, waste of money or direct threats. We will help you according to our possibilities!


Resistance For Peace is using donated money tightly focused and issue-related, because logistics and supporting bureaucracy is kept lean and efficient.
