KABUL, Afghanistan, 3 September 2008 — British actor and Peace One Day envoy Jude Law and Jeremy Gilley, film director and founder of Peace One Day campaign, travelled to Afghanistan for a two-day mission this week.
While there, they screened a new documentary, ‘The Day After Peace’, about the efforts of ordinary Afghans in support of peace. Mr. Law and Mr. Gilley also asked all parties involved in the conflict to observe Peace Day again this year. It is scheduled to take place on 21 September as part of the Peace One Day global campaign for ceasefires and non-violence.
The documentary features activities that took place throughout Afghanistan in September 2007. It also highlights support from UNICEF and the World Health Organization for the peaceful immunization of 1.4 million children against polio in insecure areas.
