Citizen coalitions

The Foundation connects citizens and helps create alliances and public platforms. These amplify citizen voice, build public demand and deepen solidarity. Aman Ittehad-United for Peace, is a nationwide citizen coalition striving for peace, democratic governance, justice, rule of law and a life of dignity. The Foundation catalyzed its formation in July 2009, and serves as its national secretariat. Aman Ittehad’s Peoples Resolution adopted in March 2010 is a roadmap to a peaceful and progressive Pakistan. It calls for constitutional rule, supremacy of parliament, peace within the country and the region, fair use of public finances, devolution of authority, justice provision, and equal opportunities. Solidarity Day is Aman Ittehad’s signature event: citizens hold public rallies across Pakistan on 1st January each year to make public demands and demonstrate solidarity from Khyber to Karachi.

In April 2005 the Foundation brought together citizen organizations in District Abbottabad to sow the seeds of a coalition that soon extended across Hazara. The coalition is called Tehreek Huqooq-e-Hazara (movement for the rights of the people of Hazara), which successfully negotiated changes in rehabilitation policies and demanded rule of law by actively participating in the Lawyers’ Movement (2007-09). It continues to strive for the rights of people, and is extending its influence beyond Hazara to other parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
