During the war in Afghanistan - the longest in Australia’s history - we made promises to the people of Afghanistan, including in relation to the protection of persecuted minorities and the rights of women and girls in Afghanistan. 

Since Kabul fell in August 2021, people across Australia have joined the Afghanistan-Australian community to call on our government to live up to that promise by offering 20,000 additional urgent humanitarian places to people escaping the Taliban.

But one year later, our government has only granted around 6,000 permanent visas to people escaping danger in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, women activists and vulnerable groups, such as the Hazara people, are being targeted and terrorised by the Taliban.

We have also heard credible reports of the Taliban terorising civilian populations, torturing and carrying out extrajudicial killings against Tajik people.

Australia has a moral obligation to the people of Afghanistan. Please call on your representative to take action now.
