Afri’s vision is of a more just, peaceful, equal and sustainable world. Afri seeks to inform debate and influence policy and practice in Ireland and internationally on human rights, peace, global justice, and sustainability issues. Afri particularly responds to injustice caused by militarisation, and by environmental destruction and resource depletion. We do this through analysis, education and action in solidarity with marginalised people in the ‘Global South’ and also in Ireland and elsewhere in the so-called ‘developed world’.
An 18 track CD by some of Ireland’s greatest artists – all of whom have performed at the Famine Walk – has been produced by Afri to mark the 30th Walk.
This is an extraordinary collection of songs, music and spoken word accompanied by a 32 page booklet brimming with interesting facts, quotes and information. Find out more here on how to get your copy.
Over 30 years Afri has been joined by thousands of people to walk the famine road through the Doolough Valley in County Mayo. It is a walk like no other, abounding in memory, music, history, solidarity and spectacular beauty; retracing the steps of the dispossessed of the past and forging solidarity with the banished and oppressed of today.
This documentary, made by RoJ, reflects on the issues at the core of this event.
