The World Peace Brigade: Vision and Failure

Author: Theodore Olson

In: Our Generation Against Nuclear War, Vol 3, No 1, 1961, pp. 34-41

The World Peace Brigade was founded in 1962 to develop the potential of transnational action. Its first project in Central Africa was planning a march in support of Zambian claims to independence (the march became unnecessary); the second was the Delhi Peking Friendship March to promote understanding at the time of the brief border war between India and China.
