Afganistan connections

I am do the book lunch with Lennin and there are a bunch of stories but i choose pretty flowers which takes place in Afghanistan.
While researching i found  out that Afghanistan has 32 provinces and a constitution of rights, as Canadians we kind of think of Afghanistan as a war country even though they are trying to make things better, but there are two big organizations the government and the Taliban and the government try's to control the country but the Taliban is so big that it is hard to stop them. in the charter it states that they have: language rights, civil and human rights and, a right to religions. If the Canadian charter was applied i think it would still be the same the only thing i think would be different is the right to vote because the president decides who will run each Provence, where if they can vote people in they might be able to make a difference.

thank you for reading

  1. Did you consider women's rights? I think that under the Canadian Charter they would definitely have more freedom but what do you think?

  2. Great post Will! Your connections between Afghanistan and Canada really made your post stronger. I noticed that you mentioned 3 of the rights individuals in Afghanistan have, but I would have loved to know more about those rights and what they state.

  3. Hi Will. What kind of impacts could the current President choosing the next have on the country as a whole? What do you think could happen if the President chooses an unsuitable heir? Also, I have heard that many crimes against their constitution are still committed. What do you think could be done about this? Also, why do you think there is not a stronger force against the Taliban, a more structured government? Thank you, and I would have liked you to also be a bit more specific with laws as clearly Afghanistan's laws are not the same as Canada's. Maybe you could discuss a few more in the comments?

  4. Hi Will, I was also doing this short story in this book and I think you did a great job of mentioning all the aspects of taliban, government and the Constitution Act. I think you have gone a little more into depth on some of these topics though. Even though some areas weren't as descriptive there was some really good areas like how you said if they added our Charter they would have votes and the individual provinces and the country as a whole would be different in a good way. I would also have to agree with how you said we imagine the country differently because we are so used to hearing about how war was there and we haven't really gotten to know the inner workings of the country but I think your post helped explain that and gave me a better image of what Afghanistan really is. I have one question though, If we added the Charter why would the voting and democratic areas be affected? Because I had different thoughts about what would be changed. But overall I think you did a great job

  5. Awesome job Will! You have great connections on Afghanistan and Canada's freedoms and rights how what would change. I also agree that not many rights would change besides the freedom to vote. This is a huge point because it doesn't seem fair to the citizens of Afghanistan to have their president chosen for them with out any say in the decision. If the citizens had the freedom to vote, how would this benefit the country and what would this change? Overall the posts you have wrote on your novel have been very fascinating and taught me lots more about this country.

    I think you did a great job on your post I have the same opinion as you if the Afghanistan had are right and freedoms the rebels would just be doing the same thing that they are doing right know. I also think that you had great connections from Afghanistan to Canada i think it really enhanced you posts.

  7. I think that your writhing was well done and very concise. I thought you went into good detail about the Taliban and you did a good job of allowing your readers to understand how bad your novel issue is.
