Afghanistan Peace Day

Submitted By Salma Mojaddidi

On the 10th year of the U.S. war in Afghanistan, please join the Afghan people in standing up for peace. We say yes to peace, justice and civil rights; we say no to war, terrorism and islamophobia.

Walk for Peace will start at the Fremont-Centerville Train Station, followed by Gather for Peace at the Centerville Community Center, and Pray for Peace. Event speakers will include Imam Zaid Shakir, New Islamic Directions; Samina Sundus, American Muslim Voice; Fazl Ghani Mogaddedi, Afghan American Muslim Outreach; Fakhrunnisa Faizani, Arman TV; and Hinhanska Haney, American Indian Student Organizer.

Please be on time, as we are on a tight schedule. Please bring your own signs to convey the message of this protest, and wear the sky blue of the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers inside Afghanistan who chose this color as their symbol of peace. This event is co-sponsored by the Muslim Peace Coalition (www.muslimpeacecoalition.org).
