he female protesters in Takhar chanted “death to oppressors” and “Taliban commit crimes and the US supports them”.
On Saturday, two groups of women held demonstrations in Kabul and Takhar against the "tyrannical policies of the Taliban".
Sources from Kabul told Afghanistan International that the Taliban had been aware of the women’s demonstration in Kabul and still attacked the demonstrators.
However, Afghanistan International received images from the protest site which showed that the female protesters had changed the location of the demonstration and read their resolution in a different area.
They said that they could not raise banners during the demonstration due to security threats from the Taliban.
At the same time, video recordings from Takhar received by Afghanistan International show that a group of women protesters are chanting slogans against the policies of the Taliban.
The female protesters in Takhar chanted “death to oppressors” and “Taliban commit crimes and the US supports them”.
Meanwhile, Afghan Women's Protest Movements in a statement on the occasion of August 15, the anniversary of the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, have called the Taliban a "terrorist" and "fascist" group.
The movements stressed that the Taliban have restricted people in such a way that they can barely breathe.
