Afri’s goal is the promotion of global justice and peace, and the reduction of poverty; this includes, but is not limited to, the progressive reduction of global militarisation, and responding to the threat of climate change, corporate control of resources and water, and interference with food sovereignty.
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’.

For 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 on YouTube, made by RoJ, reflects on the issues at the core of this event.
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. See our donation page for more details.
