HALIFAX. God's peacekeepers are about to enter the native fishing war.

A Mennonite and Quaker organization trained in peacekeeping and non- violent activism is sending ''a violence reduction team'' to northern New Brunswick to observe the spring lobster fishery.

A four-member team from the Christian Peacemaker Corps is to arrive tomorrow in Burnt Church, a Mi'kmaq reserve torn by violence last fall in a dispute over native fishing.
