THE AFGHAN WOMEN FACE BEING SOLD OUT IN THE PEACE NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN THE USA AND THE AFGHAN TALIBAN WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE BEFORE THE THE NATO COALITION WITHDRAWS IN 2014.SO THERE ISN’T MUCH TIME TO PROTECT AFGHAN WOMEN.

To be delivered to:
US SECRETARY OF STATE, JOHN KERRY.

AFGHAN WOMEN HAVE FOR DECADES BEEN THE VICTIMS OF POLITICAL FORCES INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THEIR COUNTRY. THE USA WITH THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY MUST MAKE AN ABSOLUTE COMMITMENT, IN THE PEACE NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE AFGHAN TALIBAN AND THE KARZAI GOVERNMENT, TO PROTECT AFGHAN WOMEN’S RIGHTS TO EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT, JUSTICE AND FREEDOM FROM DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND DEATH.THESE RIGHTS MUST NOT BE BARGAINED AWAY FOR STRATEGIC AND RESOURCE RELATED REASONS.
