Voices for Creative Non-Violence UK
Newsletter August 2015
Greetings from New Mexico where we have just participated in the 'Campaign Nonviolence' conference in Santa Fe, as well as attending peace vigils for the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We were lucky enough to join a 250 strong march along Trinity Avenue in Los Alamos, the site of the 'Manhatten Project'- where the atomic was researched and developed during the second world war.
We are also happy to share the latest video from our friends in Kabul who are celebrating the one year anniversary of the Borderfree Peace Centre- the only centre for non-violence in Afghanistan. Despite the recent spate of attacks in Kabul our young friends continue to celebrate the culture of peace they have created and maintained within their centre. Many of the street kids who are currently on their project attended the event.
Let it Shine! Voices peace walk will be setting off on the 17th August from Madison, Wisconsin, focusing on the execution of black and brown people without trial, whether this be domestically with police brutality, or abroad with the use of armed drones, assassinating anyone deemed a 'threat'. #LetItShine! #BlackLivesMatter
