"Speaking Our Peace is an important film because it forces its audience to come to terms with the fact that an insidious 'death process' underlies the arms race. As Dr. Rosalie Bertell, a biostatistician and Roman Catholic nun points out, destroying the land, the air and the water while simultaneously damaging the gene pool is a serious threat to life unless it is recognized as such and counteracted."
