Blogger and activist David Swanson is in Afghanistan and has begun posting his diary of his trip, which includes meetings (and video) with Afghans leading nonviolent work for peace and justice. Check it out here:

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — In honor of April 4, 1967, and April 4, 1968, when Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke out against war and when he was killed, I spent my first full day in Afghanistan on April 4, 2011, avoiding violence and discussing nonviolent activism with those practicing it here.
