On the ninth day of the hunger strike in Germany by women’s rights activists, representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the state parliament visited the protest site. They asked the activists to stop their strike.

Approximately ten days ago, women’s rights activists began their hunger strike protesting “gender apartheid in Afghanistan.” They are calling on the German government and human rights organizations to pay attention to the situation of women in Afghanistan.

Tamana Zaryab Paryani, on the fourth day of the strike, told Khaama Press News Agency that the world has failed to defend Afghan women’s rights. While women are fighting for their freedom and fundamental rights and are becoming victims, the world is engaging with the de facto administration in Kabul.

German authorities, including a representative from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany and a deputy from the state parliament, went to the protest site yesterday after two of the hunger strikers were hospitalized and demanded an end to the strike.

Zarmina Paryani, the sister of Tamana Zaryab Paryani, who had reported about the prolonged hunger strike before Tamana and Nizam Jalali were hospitalized, wrote on her social media accounts that a deputy from the parliament of the North Rhine-Westphalia state invited Tamana to speak in the state parliament.

It should be noted that the hunger strike of women’s rights activists in Cologne, Germany, has been accompanied by widespread solidarity from civil society activists. Some civil society activists in Islamabad, Pakistan, also called on the global community to pay attention to the strikers’ demands.

The hunger strikers demand three crucial things: first, the international community acknowledges the gender apartheid in Afghanistan. Second, they want any interaction with the Taliban to be forbidden. Moreover, third, they are calling for support for Afghan women. These are the main things they are asking for.
