This Blog page will be the online journal for the delegation. You can see our diary of posts in the right hand column.
Voices for Creative Non- Violence UK are taking a delegation to Kabul in December 2012. We will be working with the Afghan Peace Volunteers (APV) as well as gathering information to make various campaigning materials including: a counter militarist book aimed at UK youth, podcasts with interviews and testimonies from Afghan, a short documentary, first hand information about the impact of UK drone bombing as well as live blogs from Kabul.
This is the first UK peace delegation since the 2001 invasion. The four delegates are all women and as a group span five decades in ages, they include: Susan Clarkson, Mary Dobbing, Maya Evans and Beth Tichborne. The overarching campaign will have a specific focus on women in Afghanistan.
