A call to demonstrate
In defence of women and people of
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

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
We the supports of the 8 March
