Borderfree in Afghanistan & the World

 

Earth GEN (eration )

Introducing Earth GEN

On the 21st of September 2016, the International Day of Peace, the Afghan Peace Volunteers will grow their #Enough! movement with Earth GEN ( Green, Equal, Nonviolent )

Over the past year since the launch of the #Enough! movement, the Afghan Peace Volunteers have reached out youth in Kabul through #Enough! GEN circles, in which they have increased their awareness and understanding of the crises of global warming, socio-economic inequalities and violence with its wars.

Their friendships and experiences have helped them to ‘connect the dots’. They are more and more convinced that they need to build a better Earth by nurturing nonviolent relationships with Nature and with all members of the human family. They feel a pressing need to connect with people across the world as Earth GEN, knowing that a critical mass movement is needed to heal themselves, the Earth and humanity.

“Love can open every border!”

Dear friends,

In Afghanistan, we the Afghan Peace Volunteers, realize that a root cause of war is that people across the world don’t treat one another as equals. The earth and our human family has been exploited, divided from one another, de-humanized and made to live disparate and self-interested lives. We, as members of the human family with no political or religious aims, wish to change this through relationships! Relating will heal and liberate!

Sincerely from Kabul,

Earth GEN  Earth GEN ( Green, Equal, Nonviolent) : Earth GENeration are people everywhere building local alternatives for a shared life, as equal friends with Nature and all members of the human family!

The Afghan Peace Volunteers have begun making connections with different peace communities around the world, from the many peace groups around the world, to more intentional communities like the Barefoot College in India, Jeju Island Peace Community, San Jose Peace Community in Colombia, the Okinawa ‘anti-military base’ grassroots community and the Tamera community in Portugal.

Below are photos of friends from different peace communities around the world.
