My name is Simon Moyle.
From March 17-24, 2011, I will be in Kabul, Afghanistan, as part of an international delegation of peacemakers organised by Voices for Creative Nonviolence. We will be there at the invitation of the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers, an indigenous nonviolence movement inspired by Mohandas Gandhi and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
These stories will be told through my eyes, as a 6th generation Australian who has only ever left that country once (for my honeymoon – to Fiji!) I have been involved in peace activism for a number of years now, and this is a way of continuing to deepen that journey and be in some small way in solidarity with those suffering through a war that is now in its tenth year.
