About Peace House

The 21st November 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of the commandeering  of 5 Caledonian Road by Peace News and Housmans. Both organisations are  in fact older than this – Peace News began publishing in 1936 and  Housmans began trading in 1945 – but since 1959 we have made our home at Peace House in King’s Cross.

This home has been shared by a myriad of campaigning groups in the offices above. Current residents include War  Resisters International, Campaign Against Climate Change, No Sweat, Forces Watch, Oromo Relief Association, and Federation of Iraqi Refugees among others.
