STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH AFGHAN WOMEN’S PEACE ACTION BY WEARING A SKY-BLUE SCARF
8 MARCH 2009
ACROSS AFGHANISTAN–one of the most hostile places in the world to be a woman–more than 10,000 women will come out of their homes to call for PEACE WITH JUSTICE. They will each wear a blue scarf.
ACROSS THE WORLD, people have committed to showing their solidarity to the women of Afghanistan. You can too.
Wear a BLUE SCARF on March 8.
POST YOUR PHOTO with a blue scarf to this page.
Tell us WHERE IN THE WORLD you are.
INSALLAH, the world will be painted BLUE on March 8.
Join the facebook event “BLUE SCARF CAMPAIGN for the WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN
Spread the message, visit the blog, wear a blue scarf in solidarity, gather with your friends, document the event and send it to the Peace with Justice for Afghanistan blog so they can post it!
Why does this matter? Because somewhere on this planet a young girl is being denied the right to learn to read. What would your mother say if she knew you were just going to let that slide?
Even if you haven't got the time/means/camera/scarf to participate by sending a photo, at least spread the word, or write a note of support on their Facebook page. I have it on good authority that this is a legitimate group (my source being a professional woman who's been working in various NGOs in Afghanistan for the past three years, and knows whereof she speaks), so please do lend your support.
