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 to power,

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 carpet.

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 again!

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.
