Conscience & Peace Tax International


CPTI is an international peace movement, registered in Belgium, focussed on "Taxes for peace not war," seeking to direct taxes away from preparation for war and towards peace building. Its mission arises from the deep affront to our consciences that people are made to partici­pate in war as combatants, civilian victims and through taxation.
The ethical principle of freedom of conscience, a moral imperative governing the behaviour of an individual, is central to the objectives and work of CPTI.
  • CPTI aims to win recognition of the right to con­scientious objection to paying for armaments, war preparation and war conduct through taxes.
  • CPTI also supports the rights of conscientious objectors of all kinds and the worldwide recognition of human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
