New billboards are going up around the United States and elsewhere opposing war. Some are not going up because the message is deemed unacceptable. Many more are being planned.

This ad at right is going up in various sizes and dimensions around Lansing, Michigan, thanks to the Peace Education Center. We'll post the details on the billboards page when we have em.

The billboard below is going up for the month of January in Albany, NY -- specifically on Erie Blvd. 1,000 ft north of Nott St., thanks to Upper Hudson Peace Action:

Meanwhile, this ad is not going up anywhere, because we have not found any company willing to post it for good cold American cash:

If you can identify a billboard or busstop or other large-advertisement company that will take our money to post the above ad, it'll be up immediately. Meanwhile, we're going to try it out with online advertising.

Other antiwar and propeace billboards have gone up in these places:

  • In Albany and Schenectady, NY, in September, 2018, thanks to Women Against War.
  • In New York City thanks to the Puffin Foundation, huge billboards at 11th Ave and 49th St August 21 to Oct. 28, 2018, and 11th Ave and 45th St August 21 to Nov. 25, 2018.
  • From week of Aug. 27 to week of Sept. 23, 2018, two ads in each of these Toronto subway stations: Dundas, St George Bloor-Danforth, St. George Yonge Line, and Queen.
  • In July-August 2018 in Toronto, Canada, in dozens of subway trains.
  • In July 2018 on bus shelters near White House in Washington, D.C.
  • In April and May 2018 big billboards in Albany, New York, USA.
  • Through March -- July 2018, on stationary and moving billboards all over Syracuse, New York, USA.
  • For the month of January 2018 a billboard in downtown Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
  • For the month of December 2017 a billboard in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.

We can put up more, and you can tell us where you want to see which ones, if you fund them.

Possibilities in the works include: messages of friendship against war and sanctions on billboards in Iran, and messages against NATO and for peace when NATO meets in Washington, D.C., on April 4, 2019. Send us other ideas!
