Green Party is the peace party

(excerpt)

One of the 10 Key Values of our party is Non-Violence. We say:

It is essential that we develop effective alternatives to society’s current patterns of violence. We will work to demilitarize and eliminate weapons of mass destruction, without being naive about the intentions of other governments. We recognize the need for self-defense and the defense of others who are in danger. We promote non-violent methods to oppose practices and policies with which we disagree, and will guide our actions toward lasting personal, community and global peace.

Our commitment to peace through justice, rather than through conquest, sets us apart from the two major parties. It rejects the notion that military strength makes for moral superiority. This key value is integral to all the other values we hold. We choose peace over power.
