Press release no. 9 – 5 September 2023
In France, after months of lobbying the authorities, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs replied to the International Committee on 1 September. The response reads, in part: “You have made some interesting proposals that have attracted our full attention. I have therefore asked the teams responsible for monitoring Afghanistan at the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs to liaise with you to discuss these avenues.”
The French branch of the International Committee, made up of political and trade union activists, elected representatives, writers and other personalities, immediately contacted the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs to take further steps to secure asylum and refuge for our sisters being persecuted in Afghanistan.
This is yet further encouragement for the organizing of pickets in solidarity with the women of Afghanistan in every town in France on Saturday 7 October.
