A delegation of 45 women’s peace activists from the Women’s Regional Network and Equality for Peace and Democracy met with the Helmand Peace Marchers to express our solidarity with their peace-building initiative.
The Peace Marchers walked from Helmand to Kabul - a stunning 700km - asking that the government and the Taliban for an immediate ceasefire and to re-start peace talks. They are now carrying out a three-days sit in protest outside of UNAMA compound.
We have walked with them in solidarity every step in our journey to build peace in Afghanistan. We share their tired faces, sore feet, torn clothing and shoes. Afghans are united in our need for peace. Only together, united in our quest for a sustainable peace, can we bring our vision to life in Afghanistan.
