Human Rights Day in Kabul, Afghanistan


2mffin
Commemoration Story from the Afghan Peace Volunteers 
December 11, 2012, 7:30 pm (Kabul time)


 

Listen to the call and correspond on your computer through LiveStream.

  • 10 am Eastern / 7 am Pacific   
Listen to the Volunteers speak about their launch of the 2 million friends campaign
for Human Rights Day with delivery of their petition to
the United Nations calling for an all-parties ceasefire in Afghanistan


Hear from them directly about what it is like right now* - and from their international friends who support them including Nobel Laureate Mairead Macguire.  
(*Karzai's recent statements about immunity for forces remaining after 2014.)


Hear also about their on-going work that now includes:

  • welcoming ordinary Afghans of all backgrounds to the non-violent approach to resolve conflicts,
  • teaching language and math to others & continuing their own education,
  • creating media pieces like their Our Journey To Smile videos,
  • working with young Afghan seamstresses to make duvets (beautifully made insulated blankets) and distributing them to those in need,
  • initiating other creative, micro-loan based, livelihoods such as the Afghan 'Burger Cart' (potatoes & nan), and
  • inviting people around the world to: be friends!    
     

They will also share their video honoring everyone's Human Rights. Here's a preview:
 


       Please spread the word . . . 'in a spirit of brotherhood' and sisterhood.

 

Thank you for being our friends,  
the Afghan Peace Volunteers.
