The “#StopHazaraGenocide” Twitter campaign, started by Afghan social media users to protest the bloody attack on the Kaaj education center and recurring atrocities committed against Hazaras in Afghanistan, has received more than 10 million tweets.

Following a terrorist attack that killed over 54 students, mostly girls, at the Kaaj education center west of Kabul, the Afghan capital, the hashtag campaign made a splash on Twitter and quickly turned into a hot trend.

With billions of views, 16 million interactions, and over 10 million tweets, the “#StopHazaraGenocide” hashtag has become one of the most popular trends in Afghanistan.

Twitter users have implied that the hashtag and the global protests calling for an end to the “genocide” against the Hazara people could bring the Afghan people together as a nation.

After the attack on the Kaaj education center on September 30, protests around the world began in Sydney, Australia, and later spread to more than 100 cities, parallel to the Twitter campaign.

The Hazara demonstrations still continue bringing numerous people to the streets screaming for justice. Thousands marched in London, the capital of England on Wednesday to raise the topic of the Hazara genocide to the British Parliament.

Paul Bristow, a member of the British Parliament, spoke to the crowd and promised to continue speaking out until the genocide against the Hazara people in Afghanistan is put an end.
