RAWA demonstration to mark the Black Day of April 28
While the warlords-fostering government of Mr. Karzai every year observe April 28 as a victory day, for Afghan people, particularly women, it is the odious day in our history when the criminal fundamentalist bands took power in Kabul in 1992 following the collapse of the Russian puppet regime. It was start of a new wave of terror, destruction and barbarism all over Afghanistan and especially the capital Kabul in the hands of these terrorist gangs.
RAWA every year stages a protest rally to denounce it as a gloomy day. On April 28, 2005, RAWA organized a demonstration in front of the UN headquarter in Islamabad which was attended by hundreds of women, girls and boys.
Through this demonstration, RAWA strongly condemned pro-fundamentalists policies of Mr. Karzai government and pointed out to it as a main factor in continuation of human rights catastrophe in Afghanistan.
2 members of RAWA supporters group from Japan joined us on the black day to express their solidarity with Afghan people. One of them read out a message of support which was also distributed among the journalists.
