Skateboarding means liberty!

The Americans have cultured and support the Talibans in fight against the Soviet Union.

The Taliban are an American product.

So the Americans are fighting for “freedom” against their former supported group. The victims are the children and the Afghanistan people.

The American republicans are not liberators, they are warlords, who pretend to fight for democracy.

SUPPORT Skateistan, become a member!

Power the kids and to the People!

SKATEISTAN: To live and skate in Kabul

.

.

Well, now I know but before I see this doc I didn’t have any idea. What is all about. We know what is attractive for d film festivals around? Stories from this kind, ok maybe not this script but d environment, d way of living, tradition, culture. What is d spot that connect Us with this society. What does it mean urban living there?
First I saw d picture and I stop for a moment, why, how, where, is it fake one? Thousands of questions in my mind, then one opportunity, press d link!

“In a country with innumerable problems, Skateistan represents an oasis where children can be children and build the kinds of cross-cultural relationships that Afghanistan needs for future stability. Programmer’s Note: Former professional snowboarder Orlando von Einsiedel found that the Skateistan project combined two worlds he felt very passionate about: extreme sports and social work. The Skateistan project—started by two Australian aid workers who began giving skating as well as educational lessons to more than 350 kids in Kabul, Afghanistan—equips young men and women with the skills to lead their communities toward social change and development and piqued von Einsiedel’s interest enough to make him want to capture it with a camera. Flying directly from Frankfurt to Kabul, von Einsiedel and crew sought to create a more optimistic image of Afghanistan. What resulted is a beautifully composed film that turns a spotlight on neither the battles nor the victims in this war-torn country, but rather on the hopeful spirit and culture of change that the youth of Kabul are yearning to put into action. We’re thrilled to welcome von Einsiedel’s film to this year’s Festival and urge you to check out skateistan.org on your next Internet stop.”

:I have experience in watching documentary movies since I am part of d team of d International Film Festival [AsterFest], and stories with background as this are not stressful at all for me. But from other side this story here is just reflection of d life out there at some place pretty different from d picture that we are used to see on d screen.
Ruined villages,cities, asphalt full of holes, dead animals on the streets. This is only a small part of d everyday life of this young people in this place. Stinks, unemployed pips, street vendors, big poverty, gaps in education, system error, WAR. They have too many problems and few desires.

The film talks about a group of youngsters who have the same desire. the West Urbanity associate u to? – Skaters. the skate as a tool for making peace, as soon as they shooting stops all young skaters are out there matching d square and showing that this time d war is over. .. for a couple of hours.
Youth with a great desire to learn drivin’ this boards, to do tricks, make downhill or use d new ramps . .. like those on d television. The film documents a project that supports the educational process, training, their first attempts.

I have seen a lot of movies with d same topic, our region is pretty knows in d World as war place too. We had wars in Yugoslavia, after that few more. .. and if u attend film festivals for #docs in d Balkans u’ll be able to watch hundreds of sad stories for d life her. murders, destroyed families, lost partners, kids etc. I like d positive side of this documentary. .. it’s really time to stop this Wars and give those kids chance to live. Life is important for every human being, let they dream awaken!

:Yes, I do believe that  changes are coming. This is one of d ways, engaged advertising,  adds that are changing ur view of d things in a seconds. That’s why I save this picture when I saw it in my stream. We need to change d way of seeing d things, we must push for bigger awareness , we need to try more!

.

This is one add that is fighting agains d blind society that is making new buildings and city halls but never think truly open. I know a lot of people who have their disabilities as a problem, and I believe it’s like this only because d society made this way of understanding d things. They don’t have (really) a problem, maybe some of them only have physical disabilities but it’s so in front of ur nose because nobody cares to make d life better for them. .. then we continue with building our stereotypes, tabооs etc.

well, I stand against that, I wish all of my city stairs have this add on, at least till don’t make d infrastructure change and make their regular even without this problem, hard life’s, easier . .. crossing fingers for fast development, especially if they are crucial as this.

:International Volunteer Day & voila participation

1 Comment

Being volunteer is not a little thing. I remember my childhood and first steps into voluterism .. it was like a bliss that finding. I could help, participate, been active in so many fields since then.

Being volunteer is a task that everyone need to try!

There are thousands and thousands of problems that occupy are world today, d strategy for making our place better for our future generations is to get involved. The money are not the problem, we always don’t have them, satiric sarcasm that comes from my country. But if u try to forget the money that u’ll see incredible things in d circles where people work hard and promote d volunteers benefits.

I have experience in volunteering over 10 years already, but in my skin I feel like I just start d long distance work. So many things can be changed in my surrounding and I just know that this is d only way. Working with different target groups, trying to make small steps for brighter tomorrow is good decision, when u’re volunteer u can practice d things that u know but learn so much more.

International Volunteer Day Message from Nigel Hiller-Garvey on Vimeo.

The program that I start using after my high school is well known in d youth area, it’s called Youth in action and engaged a lot of youngsters from all Europe.Youth in Action is the EU Programme for young people aged 15-28 (in some cases 13-30). It aims to inspire a sense of active citizenship, solidarity and tolerance among young Europeans and to involve them in shaping the Union’s future.

Youth in Action is a programme for all! It promotes mobility within and beyond the EU borders, non-formal learning and intercultural dialogue, and encourages the inclusion of all young people, regardless of their educational, social and cultural background.

Youth in Action is the successor of the YOUTH Programme (2000-2006). Building on the experience of the previous programmes for youth, Youth in Action is the result of a large consultation with the different stakeholders in the youth field and aims to respond to the evolutions and needs of young people at European level.

With a total budget of 885 million euros for seven years (2007-2013), the Programme supports a large variety of activities for young people and youth workers through five Actions.

There are many sectors where if u have d good will to participate. U can take part in d general activism, but also help and work with sectors like:children, civil society, culture & sports, education, emergency relief etc. May issues are waiting for u to become aware and join d new era of (r)evolution. Advocacy, corporate volunteering, infrastructure, management, policy, research, senior volunteers, vacation volunteering, volunteering for development, young volunteers an so ON!

What does wikipedia says about this day?

International Volunteer Day (IVD) – (December 5) is an international observance designated by the United Nations since 1985.

The declared aim of this activity is to thank the volunteers for their efforts and increase public awareness on their contribution to society. The day is celebrated in majority countries of the world.

The International Volunteer Day is marked by many non-governmental organizations, including Red Cross, scouts and others. It is also marked and supported by United Nations Volunteers.
