Afghan Peace Volunteers in Kabul launch their campaign for a border free world
Border Free is the wish of the APV to live without wars, to share resources and to take care of the earth under the same blue sky.
In a world free of borders, they hope for people and friends to work together around climate change, socioeconomic inequalities, militarism with its wars and other global challenges facing humanity today, and wear the Borderfree Blue Scarves while organizing shared solidarity actions as a strong 99%!
“The political and economic mafia of Afghanistan and the world run this country with their guns and bombs,” says Abdulhai, a 17 year old Afghan Peace Volunteer. “We the people are helpless, unless we stand together.”
60% of Afghan children are malnourished. In 2012, at least 2500 Afghan women committed suicide. And over the past four decades, Afghan families have lost at least 2 million loved ones to wars.
Such glaring disparities and inequalities of Wealth and Power make ordinary Afghans like us, the Afghan Peace Volunteers, feel occasionally frustrated, de-humanized and lonely.
The APV wish to play a small part in humanity’s work towards a better world.
No more war! No more economic exploitation by the 1%! No more destruction of the earth and climate! No more systemic hunger and homelessness! No more brainwashing by the media!
