The takeover of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan has resulted in a hunger crisis, erasure of the LGTBQ+ community, intensified genocide against Hazaras, racist attacks on Afghan refugees in Iran, Pakistan, and Turkey, as well as thousands of deaths, injuries, and homelessness during earthquakes in Herat. Additionally, the mass deportation of 1.7 million Afghans in Pakistan has added to the challenges.
Most importantly, women in Afghanistan have been facing gender apartheid since day one of this regime. Their bodies and actions are politicized and strictly controlled. Prohibited from most public activity, their homes have become their detention centers.Their existence is being denied. Despite all these, they continue the fight for liberation.
The struggle is not limited to Afghanistan alone; everywhere, all around the world, our siblings are fighting for liberation:
from occupation, dictatorship, border regimes, exploitation and patriarchy.
We are united in our oppression; our enemy wants our depression and discouragement. The very same reason why music, dance that bring happiness and fire the spirit, are forbidden.
Music is resistance.
Dance shows solidarity.
Let us dance, connect, and stay together against all types of oppression for a liberated world. Let us fight!
