Dear friends of freedom,
At about 1pm Afghanistan time (10.30 am Gaza time - when the planned Gaza Freedom March was supposed to begin) on the 31st of December 2009, the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers had a tele-conference with these friends (the conversation with Baseem and Yaniv was short but priceless).

Happy 2010 to all!
