The #StandUpWithAfghanWomen! Campaign
The #StandUpWithAfghanWomen! Campaign aims to protect human rights in Afghanistan and to promote incisive action in support of the democratic and anti-fundamentalist realities operating in the country.
The campaign focuses on four main themes:
Non-recognition of the Taliban government
Self-determination of the Afghan people
Political recognition of progressive Afghan forces and banning of political figures linked to fundamentalist parties
Monitoring respect for human rights
Stand Up With Afghan Women! is the result of Cisda and Large Movements joint action within the framework of the Euro-Afghan Coalition for Democracy and Secularism, a network of organisations already committed in their daily actions to the defence of human rights.
Actions promoted by Stand Up With Afghan Women
Stand Up With Afghan Women! promotes information, awareness-raising and advocacy actions aimed at civil society and policy-makers in support of the Campaign’s four main topics.
The Campaign focuses on the Petition and a series of events and actions to protest against the Taliban regime after one year of repressive rule. The Campaign will be enriched by the contribution of all those who wish to join.
The #StandUpWithAfghanWomen! petition
Afghan activists have always demanded that Afghan people decide their own destiny without any foreign interference.
The Stand Up With Afghan Women! Campaign is addressing a Petition to Governments, European Institutions and the United Nations to support their claims and the right to self-determination for the Afghan people
WITH (not FOR) the Afghan women
The Campaign calls for an end of the foreign countries interferences that have prevented any democratic process in Afghanistan since the late 1970s with the succession of military occupations and the provision of military and political support to fundamentalist and jihadist militias. These external influences pose a serious threat to peace, rights, democracy, secularism and security in the West as well. The challenge is common. Common is the commitment to meet it.
All civil society organisations can join the Euro-Afghan network to promote the #StandUpWithAfghanWomen! Campaign by creating events and promoting the collection of signatures for the Petition
All people can contribute to the Campaign by signing the Petition.
