Efforts at Reconciliation by Afghans for Peace and Iraq Veterans Against the War

A video for Independence Day, by Iraq Veterans Against the War and Afghans for Peace:
This video features an exclusive interview with Suraia Sahar of Afghans for Peace (AFP) and Aaron Hughes of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) that was shot a day after the historic march for Justice and Reconciliation to end the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) occupation of Afghanistan and begin a process of healing and reconciliation.

This march led to a new growing relationship between IVAW and AFP that is sparking a new antiwar movement led by the most impacted communities, veterans and Afghan civilians. Currently the Afghanistan Veterans Against the War Committee of IVAW is working with AFP on a joint statement for justice and reconciliation.
