Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan

News

Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAfghan) is concerned with recent moves forward in pursuing negotiations with the Taliban, through means that are at odds with democratic process. We are opposed to any compromise on the rights of women and girls, and to any talks that exclude key stakeholders, like women, and which take place outside of a fully transparent and democratic framework.

Letter from Manizha on Taliban Talks in Doha

Dear Supporters,

As you know, the Taliban has opened an office in Doha, Qatar, and claims to want to negotiate a peaceful solution to the long war in Afghanistan.

Although we yearn for peace as much as you, Women for Afghan Women believes that far from achieving that goal, negotiating with the Taliban is the way to brutal repression.

     Afghanistan, and its capital city in particular, are facing an environmental crisis that puts millions of lives at risk, and significantly lowers the quality of life of Afghans.  Despite the gravity of this crisis—which is estimated to claim far more lives than the current conflict—little is being done.
