NEW AFRI BOOK ON PEACE AND NEUTRALITY
A Force for Good? Reflections on Neutrality and the Future of Irish Defence
€10 incl P&P. Order info below.
This book is a vital contribution to the discussion on the importance of Irish neutrality and its role as the bedrock of Irish foreign and defence policy. Even today – especially today – as war rages in so many areas around the world and as two nuclear-armed ‘superpowers’ actively engage in a proxy war, the world urgently needs voices calling for, and countries working towards, de-escalation, demilitarization and disarmament.
Ireland, recently described by the Economist magazine as ‘having a good claim to be the world’s most diplomatically powerful country’, is ideally placed – historically and geographically – to be that voice. But instead of seizing this opportunity the Government is increasingly abandoning our neutrality and throwing in its lot with some of the world’s most aggressive military powers.
A Force for Good is a collection of essays by people who have long and deep experience of working for peace and against militarism at every level from academic to activist, on this island and in the wider world. Contributors include Nobel Peace Prize winner Máiréad Maguire; UCC Emeritus Professor John Maguire; Dr Karen Devine of DCU; Dr Iain Atack, formerly of TCD; Carol Fox of the Peace and Neutrality Alliance; and `Tarak Kauff, former paratrooper with the US Army and now active member of Veterans for Peace.
€10 per copy including P&P.

Give a Gift of Light to a Kenyan Family
Give a gift of light to a family in Kenya. Children and families who do not have electricity will benefit from your gift.
Many children in Kenya are very enthusiastic about education. Tabitha and Abel (pictured) live with their mother Magdalene Sembele. Tabitha is in school while Abel will start next year. Tabitha and Abel received their lamp in October 2019.
Prior to their solar lamp they used a paraffin lamp. The solar lamp provides them with a safe and clean source of light and enables their mother to charge her phone instead of having to travel to the village centre to have it charged at a fee.
Your solar light gift will:
- Improve health…by avoiding use of kerosene;
- Tackle poverty…by reducing cost of energy;
- Reduce global warming…by replacing use of fossil fuels;
- Increase income…by enabling people to work after darkness;
- Contribute towards Afri’s climate justice work and partnerships with Development Pamoja and the Kenya Pastoralist Journalist Network.
Solar Lights cost €15 each.
The money raised from Afri’s 2020 campaign went to purchase over one hundred solar lights in Northern Kenya and Mogotio on the Equator, north of Nakuru.
Please specify that your payment is for Solar Lamps in the third panel of the payment process, (when following the secure payment button above), and provide a postal address to enable us to process your order.

They All Had Names
Afri has produced this badge as a way of remembering those nameless millions who have died during An Gorta Mór and those who continue to die as a result of hunger in our world of plenty today.
The image is the beautiful flower that grows on the potato stalk.
While many people wear badges or flowers to remember those who die in war – we want to provide a way to remember the forgotten people who die of hunger – often caused by war and climate change.
Available with a button fastener or with a pin at €3 each.
