Kabul Peace Protest

Afghan Peace Volunteers Plant Trees as a response to an attack close to their home last week

Last week there was a Taliban attack on an American NGO not far from the APV. The initial bomb shook their house, then the four hours of shooting which ensued meant the group sheltered under a set of stairs. Thankfully everyone in the group are safe though the trauma has taken a toll.

A few days later the APV decided to plant over 100 trees, they were helped by police officers, local street kids, seamstresses and those just walking by.

Afghan Election Guide: As election observers leave town there's already grounds for claiming the upcoming elections have been rigged. Candidates range from those who are friends with war lords or have picked them as running mates- read Beth Tichborne's election guide - and decide who you would vote for? 
Plant Tress Not Bombs:
A remarkable action of peace: Afghan youth plant trees in Kabul as a response to the violence and bombs which have become an everyday occurrence for the people of Afghanistan. The act reflects the feels of the majority of Afghans who are saying ENOUGH to war, we want peace.
