Mere days before the one-year anniversary of President Joe Biden’s cutting and running from Afghanistan and turning the country over to the Islamist extremists of the Taliban, things aren’t going well for women, especially those who turned out to protest in Kabul on Saturday only to be brutally dispersed by the regime’s thugs.
Reports along with sobering images are making the rounds on the internet and social media showing the despicable treatment of the women who rallied in the Afghan capital to mark the one-year anniversary of the toppling of the U.S.-backed government only to be greeted by Taliban fighters who fired their automatic weapons into the air and physically beat demonstrators.
Chanting “Justice! Justice! We’re fed up with ignorance,” outside of the Education Ministry, the women called for “Bread, work and freedom” with many defying the oppressive government by not wearing burkas as they took to the streets in an act of protest that has become all too rare since Biden and his team of military and foreign policy geniuses ran up the white flag of surrender, abandoning both Afghanis and Americans to a cruel fate.
“15 August is a black day,” read a sign carried by some demonstrators, a reference to the day that the Islamist militants cracked down on women’s rights last summer, protesters also reportedly chanted “15 August is a black day.”
According to reporting from Agence France-Presse, “Some female protesters who took refuge in nearby shops were chased and beaten by Taliban fighters with their rifle butts.”
“Unfortunately, the Taliban from the intelligence service came and fired in the air,” Zholia Parsi, one of the protests organizers said. “They dispersed the girls, tore our banners and confiscated the mobile phones of many girls.”
Another protester, Munisa Mubariz vowed to keep protesting despite the police state response. “If the Taliban want to silence this voice, it’s not possible. We will protest from our homes,” she said
“They didn’t beat us much this time,” one was quoted by the BBC in a sad commentary of how bad that the situation is today in Afghanistan.
“They acted differently than earlier protests [when we were beaten]. They fired shots in the air. Though we’re afraid we came out to advocate for the rights of girls, so that at least the Taliban will open schools for them,” the BBC reported.
Numerous video clips of the protests and crackdown were posted to Twitter.

“It was important because it’s nearly the first anniversary of the Taliban rule and we wanted to say that we don’t consent to this government,” an unidentified young woman told NPR, requesting that she remain anonymous out of fear of Taliban reprisals.
“After a year of this government, there is no change in the situation. We are showing that we won’t stay silent,” she said. “It’s important to show the world that Afghans don’t accept this. We will stand against injustice.”
One year after what some have described as the the most humiliating foreign policy defeat for America since the end of the Vietnam war, there has been zero accountability for either Biden, his top advisers, the State Department or the Pentagon for the shameful exit from the longest running conflict in the nation’s history and the humanitarian catastrophe that they created for those who are now trapped in a living hell and at the mercy of the Taliban.
