Building upon their previous rallies, the Afghan diaspora community in Canada continued their protests in both Ottawa and Vancouver this past weekend to denounce the violation of human rights and spotlight the dire humanitarian situation occurring in Afghanistan. As reports of increasing human rights violations have circulated over the past month, both demonstrations called upon the international partners to pressure the Taliban to respect the human rights and freedoms of every Afghan.

Among the demonstrators in Ottawa was Mr. Fahim Shoja who had not eaten anything for three days in protest of the current ongoing humanitarian crisis and human rights violations in Panjshir as well as the rest of Afghanistan.
The demonstrators further expressed their concern that the rights and freedom of Afghans, particularly women and girls, are currently being threatened by those who refuse to adhere to an inclusive and prosperous future for Afghanistan.
