DREAMING OF PEACE
August 2021. The Afghan storyteller and activist Nadia Ghulam, seeing that the Talibans are advancing in Afghanistan, begins to move to help her family.
These pages were born after conversations between Nadia and journalist Ariadna Oltra, where they talked about how she and her family have lived this last year, what she had to do to get part of her family to come to Spain and those who are living in Kabul, those who have not been able to leave. The story of a few and yet, the reality of thousands of Afghan families and others from different parts of the world.
That August, the media bombarded us with images of men falling from planes as they desperately tried to flee the occupation. Months later, no one is telling us what is happening there, nor how the people who were able to flee and those who have been sheltered in different parts of the world are doing now.
Nadia’s voice is the voice of all of them. This Afghan girl who pretended to be a boy for ten years in order to have the rights that she was denied as a woman, has been living in Barcelona since she was 16 years old. Her own objective and the one of these pages is to help the women of her country so that they can continue with their studies.
