Voices for Creative Non-Violence UK work in solidarity with non-violent Afghan peacemakers; namely the Afghan Peace Volunteers (APV), some of whom are shown below. Our activities include taking peace delegations to Afghanistan to gather testimonies and analysis from grassroots Afghan peace activists; then to convert that information into campaigning materials in the US/UK e.g. speaking tours, pamphlets, books, podcasts and documentaries. We want to support non-violent Afghans in voicing their wishes for their country and do what we can in our own countries to strengthen the peace movement and pressurise our Governments to end their involvement in a war which has lasted over 11 years; is fuelling violent radicalism in Afghanistan as well as the UK; and moreover continuing a stream of violence in a country which has experienced bloodshed since 1979.
