David Swanson is an author, activist, journalist, and radio host. He is the director of World Beyond War, a global nonviolent movement to end war and establish a just and sustainable peace. David is campaign coordinator for RootsAction.org.
David’s books on war and peace include War Is A Lie (a catalog of the types of falsehoods regularly told about wars), War Is Never Just (a refutation of just war theory), and When the World Outlawed War (an account of the 1920s peace movement and the creation of the Kellogg Briand Pact), as well as (co-author) A Global Security System: An Alternative to War (a vision of a world of nonviolent institutions).
David blogs at DavidSwanson.org and WarIsACrime.org. He hosts a weekly radio show called Talk Nation Radio. He speaks frequently on the topic of war and peace, and engages in all kinds of nonviolent activism. He recently drafted a resolution urging Congress to move money from the military to human and environmental needs, rather than the reverse. Versions of the resolution were passed by several cities and by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. David also recently organized, with a lot of help from the Backbone Campaign, a flotilla of 50 kayaks that held banners on the Potomac River in front of the Pentagon reading “No wars for oil / No oil for wars.”
David is a 2015, 2016, 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee.
David holds a Master’s degree in philosophy from UVA and has long lived and worked in Charlottesville, Virginia.

I would like to support bringing David Swanson to San Diego. He has an outstanding background in anti-war activity both as a researcher and writer and as an activist. Having worked with David on the Kucinich for President Political Campaign back in 2003-2004, I can vouch for his earnestness and his hard work in the cause of peace.
I’ll reply by email.
I said this poem about peace .
Entire existence I tore out of me,
Deep in tired voice I screamed ,
Calling the peace for all, more wars the echo.
Nailed my being on to my finger tips,
and wrote my desire for innocent peace, sketch on the water .
