A call to demonstrate
In defence of women and people of Afghanistan
Against Taliban, US and other reactionary
The rapid political developments in the last few weeks,
particularly in the last few days in Afghanistan not only shocked the people of
Afghanistan but also shocked the people whole world. Us since the very start of
negotiation with Taliban, the green light was given for the return of Taliban
During the process of so called peace
negotiation, Taliban forces were using violence on horrific action against
school girls, hospitals, shopping market, but American forces showed no action
against all these atrocities!
If twenty years ago, US Imperialist and its allies occupied
Afghanistan with bloodshed, killing tens of thousands and making hundreds of
thousands of refugees and promising women liberation by abolishing Taliban from
political power, today they have welcome them to political power with red
With the violent occupation of Afghanistan thousands of Afghan’s
people were forced to become refugees in Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and European
countries, today tens of Thousands of women with their children, bare footed
are crossing deserts and mountains to reach neighbouring countries in the hope
of saving themselves from the barbarism of Taliban.
Twenty years ago Afghan’s people paid the
cost of US strategical interests with blood and bringing to power of a
dependent government and today they again have to pay with Taliban coming back
to power because of US strategy and priorities have changed again.
In the past few weeks, in the towns and villages captured by
Taliban, women have been killed just because they were out by their own, for
wearing high-heel shoes. Very young girls were beaten and forcefully taken from
their homes and used as sex-slaves. These just a few events appeared on the
news. History, once more, has proven that no Imperialist power in any part of
world could be trusted to liberate any women on this planet.
Since the occupation of Afghanistan, women have been the main
victims and today with clearing the obstacles for coming back to power of
Taliban by the US and their allies and regional and local servants, it will be
women who will bear the blunt of the anti-women Islamic fundamentalist forces
But today, the people of Afghanistan, particularly women are not
alone. Millions of women in Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and other
countries in the world are on their side, because they have common goals and
share the same fate. Any violence against women in Afghanistan is violence
against women all over the world.
People of Iran who have the bitter experience of the Islamic regime
that came to power 42 years ago with the help of Imperialists do not see their
struggles separable from the struggle of the Afghan’s people.
We the supports of the 8 March women’s organisation
(Iran-Afghanistan) have decided to organise a picket by Saturday in defence of
women and people of Afghanistan by exposing all Imperialists and reactionaries
and all reginal and local servants among the people.
We call on all progressive forces, activists, militant
organisations and all freedom loving people to join us hand in hand to be the
voice of Afghanistani women against Taliban and other
Islamic fundamentalists and all the big powers nesting in Afghanistan.
