#MyRedLine - Where do Afghans stand on women's rights and peace?

Afghan perceptions and ways to meaningful peace took center stage at the film screening and discussion event “My Red Line – The Afghanistan Voice for Peace”

On 29th December, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Afghanistan co-hosted the event “My Red Line – The Afghanistan Voice for Peace” in Kabul, together with My Red Line - خط سرخ من, a social media campaign aiming at raising the voices on women's rights and peace of Afghans from all walks of life while the Peace Talks are happening among multiple parties.

Since March 2019, more than 90 Afghan women and men from Kabul, Helmand, Kandahar, Jawzjan and Bamyan provinces had been interviewed by the Afghan journalist Farahnaz Forotan and her team - a film screening brought some of these voices to the center of Kabul and enriched the discussion about how to listen to the many diverse and at times conflicting voices of Afghanistan and how to identify, formulate and recognize the needs and demands that should take center stage in the negotiations.

In the ensuing panel discussion moderated by Hadia Essazada on the question of public inclusion in the peace negotiations, Lailuma Nasiri, Co-Founder & VP of Afghanistan Justice Organization, Shoaib Raimi, Senior Adviser at State Ministry for Peace, and Shahrzad Akbar, Chairperson of the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights, shared their views and engaged in a lively debate with the audience.

More voices for peace are needed in 2020!
