One year after he visited the country to help film a documentary, Jude Law has returned to Afghanistan once more to help maintain momentum for Peace Day — an annual event on Sept. 21 urging a global cease-fire and nonviolence. The actor arrived in Kabul on Sunday, and will meet President Hamid Karzai, top NATO and U.N. officials, and members of the aid community in the coming days.

“When I left Kabul last year, I was hugely moved not by the conflict that I have read so much about, but by the people’s courage and the people’s sense of hope,” Law told reporters in Kabul on Monday.

“It seemed that they really want to make this day, the Peace Day, work. And they did,” Law said. “People recognize the day, because they recognize that lives could be saved.”

Back in July of 2007, Law accompanied filmmaker Jeremy Gilley to Afghanistan as part of a documentary called The Day After Peace. Law’s deep involvement with the film came about almost on a whim after shooting a promotional segment for the idea. After the take, Gilley said he was traveling to Afghanistan. Law said he wasn’t busy and asked to come along. The director was shocked, but graciously accepted his offer.

“It is Peace Day’s commitment to take this film as a message from people of Afghanistan to the rest of the world,” he said.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
