On the occasion of March 8, the coalition of women’s movements held a street protest in Kabul city.
This morning (Wednesday, March 8), a group of protesting women chanted “Bread, Work, Freedom” and “Don’t take Afghanistan’s women as political hostages” in a street protest.
By issuing a seven-point resolution, the protesting women presented their demands to the people and the international community.
The protesting women say that this is the second March 8 under the rule of the Taliban group, that women are deprived of their most basic rights, and the world, especially the international community, should hold the Taliban accountable in all cases of women’s rights violations and women’s exclusion.
Protesting women say: “Now it’s time for the United Nations to decide the fate of the Afghan people with seriousness and perseverance.”
In the seven-point resolution of the protesting women, it is stated that the protesting women want the basic rights of women, the opening of the gates of schools and universities, political participation, the realization of justice, free and fair elections, and a government based on the people’s vote.
These women also asked the international community to defend the rights of the people, especially the women of Afghanistan, against the Taliban.
“Imposing more restrictions against the Taliban and serious actions by the United Nations is the only way to make the Taliban comply with the demands of Afghan women, please do not hesitate.”
The protesting women also asked the people of Afghanistan that “we also ask the people of Afghanistan to stand by the protesting women of Afghanistan and to join the spontaneous movements of the people and for the first time in the political history of Afghanistan to change their political destiny regardless of the western and eastern versions, as a responsible citizen, make a decision in their own hands.”
At the end of this resolution, it is addressed to the people: “Let’s rise, fight and break the chains of captivity and make sacrifices so that we, our dreams and our children will not be fodder for the games of a few mercenary politicians.”
This is a street protest of women while the Taliban group has always suppressed women’s civil protests.
Today’s women’s protests also ended before the arrival of the Taliban.
