صمیم را امروز زیر خاک گذاشتیم و خودمان برگشتیم. رفیق خوب‌مان برای همیشه خوابید.
زندگی روایت‌گر قصه‌های افغانستان پایان یافت. صمیم فرامرز، در حمله‌ای دوم دیروز در غرب کابل جان باخت. او که بود؟ این گزارش را ببیند.

Barchi has seen so many attacks targeting "a wrestling gym...mosques, a maternity ward" and girls’ schools, most claimed by Islamic State groups." Most residents are Hazara, who were "subject to massacres and abuses by former warlords and the Taliban." thenewhumanitarian.org/news-…

ما هیچ کداممان این حجم از غم و درد #پدر‌هزاره را درک نمیتوانیم، فرزندش را از دست داده، پاره تنش را، امید و آرزویش را. اما میتوانیم با او همراه باشیم و صدایش باشیم. #StopHazaraGenocide

We now have a Home Sec who dreams of expelling those who have sought protection in the UK to Rwanda. @SuellaBraverman those who drafted the Refugee Convention, including the UK, in the aftermath of the holocaust & WW2 also had a dream, to protect the most vulnerable. Shame on you

Under the Taliban’s catastrophic rule of #Afghanistan, it has severely restricted the rights of women and girls, suppressed the media, and arbitrarily detained, tortured, and summarily executed critics and perceived opponents, among other abuses. hrw.org/news/2022/08/11/afgh…

After speaking with the father of one of the victims, who hasn’t been able to find body of his daughter until today, except for one pair of her shoe; I realised that “pain can’t be expressed with words anymore but only with painful cries.” #StopHazaraGenocide

Taliban authorities have done little to protect Hazaras + other religious minorities from attacks. Governments engaging with the Taliban should call for better protection of Hazara and Shia communities. Revisit our discussion on recent targeted attacks: twitter.censors.us/i/spaces/1eaJbrk…

Rest in power beautiful girl ✊🏽you will not be forgotten and your life and our loss will be for something, we promise.
She is one of the victims. In this picture, you can see how committed she has been to building a better future. Staying up late nights in a corner of Kabul, where there isn't a proper electricity or heating system. She’s gone now; it's up to us not to forget her dreams.💔

The Hazaras are an ethnic group scattered throughout Afghanistan.
Hajar & Marzia were book addicts. They lived & died with books. Just weeks before they got massacred in their classroom, they had finished reading @paulocoelho's The Alchemist (In the picture). Snapshot with their framed photos & favorite books on their tombs #StopHazaraGenocide

People crossing the Channel also dream: Activists dreaming of democracy Women dreaming of their rights Children dreaming of their families
If your “dream” Is someone else’s nightmare …I think it’s fair to say something has gone very wrong for you.

Basgul, 14, is another victim of the Friday attack on Kaj academy. 💔
At least 53 people killed and 110 injured, mostly young women, as they practiced university entrance exams in Kabul. Taliban refuse to protect minorities from violent attacks. Children risk their lives to go to school while world leaders stand by and watch. #StopHazaraGenocide

به اندازه‌ی فشنگ‌هایت قلم می‌خرم. به پایانِ خوشِ این راه معتقدم. نه تنها خودم را که تو را نیز از دست خودت نجات خواهم داد. بیا با من همراه شو. پیشرفت من علیه تو نیست. من برای فرزندان همیشه در جنگت آینده‌ی روشن می‌طلبم. و تو، آیا باز هم معقتدی مرا باید بکشند؟ #StopHazaraGenocide

53 young women - most of them Hazara - died in a suicide bomb attack on an educational centre in Kabul. All were eager to learn & shape a better future for their country. The attack triggered protests all over the country. Now, the Taliban are cracking down on the protesters.
