Peace on Earth happens Aug 29 - Aug 31

Unfortunately the Peace on Earth event referred to on the subject line is only a film festival and not the cessation of all conflict around the globe; however, you gotta start somewhere, and Chicago seems like a good place - & indie film is a good thing to start with; more on the fest - from Withoutabox:

"Peace on Earth Film Festival
1 Annual August 29, 2008 to August 31, 2008
...
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Peace On Earth Film Festival (POEFF) has been established to celebrate and encourage the work of independent films from around the world on the themes of peace and non-violence. POEFF is a not-for-profit film festival whose primary objective is to raise an awareness of peace as a possibility, by bringing attention to independent films from around the world. Through the power of motion pictures, POEFF endeavors to enlighten and empower individuals, families and communities to step out of the ignorance of conflict, violence and divisiveness into the light of communication, compassion and understanding.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Peace On Earth Film Festival has been established as a vision of New Thought Chicago (NTC), to grow and nurture awareness of the possibilities within all of us to contribute to peace in our own lives as well as the lives of everyone on the planet. POEFF will bring filmmakers of all backgrounds and levels of experience together in the message and promotion of peace and non-violence in Chicago and the world. POEFF invites filmmaker's challenging perspectives on issues such as war, conflict, world politics, environment, economics, and more, while presenting an alternative of peace and non-violence from all cultural perspectives.
