Batterers take charge of Orange County Peace Coalition?

Domestic violence victims seek answers as Orange County Peace Coalition places batterers in charge of events

On Saturday, April 9, 2011, at Irvine's Great American Write-In, women were shocked to find batterers in charge of the Peace Coalition table. "Beating up women is not peaceful," one onlooker said.

So why is the Orange County Peace Coalition promoting domestic violence? One answer is that one of the batterers has computer skills and computer skills trump peace. Some of the victims had been members of the Peace Coalition and those members feel betrayed by this new alliance between the OCPC and violent men.

A concern has arisen in the past regarding batterers running the Internet groups for the peace coalition and having access to donations to the group.

Webster's dictionary defines peace as:

Definition of PEACE

1: a state of tranquility or quiet: as a : freedom from civil disturbance b : a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom

2: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions

3: harmony in personal relations

4a : a state or period of mutual concord between governments b : a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity

5—used interjectionally to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell

— at peace

: in a state of concord or tranquility



The Orange County Peace Coalition seems to have found a new definition of the word "peace."
