Producer/Host: Carolyn Coe

Afghan students and an US Iraq war veteran share their war and tea stories.

Aaron Hughes, of Iraq Veterans Against the War, invited Afghan students to respond to the questions: “When did the war begin for you?” and “What are some of your tea stories and traditions?” He also shared his own stories and those of other US veterans who have spoken out against war. Hughes gave this tea performance at the Borderfree Nonviolence Community Centre in Kabul, Afghanistan, on December 27, 2015.
