Campaign 2016

A year ago, the campaign for reconciliation against the blood feud ended

The national campaign of awareness against blood feuds, promoted in 2016 by Operazione Colomba in Albania, ended on 30 September 2016 near the capital city of Tirana. On that date, a plaque in memory of blood feuds’ victims  was donated to the Palace of Culture of Kamez to remember that this practice still violates fundamental human rights. Since 2010, we have been working to reach an important goal: the end of blood feuds’ phenomenon through reconciliation and forgiveness paths.
