Taliban Demands Acceptance into UN

The Taliban is in New York this week demanding acceptance into the United Nations. The terrorist regime, which invaded Afghanistan’s largest cities and controls 90 percent of the country, wants the UN to recognize the Taliban as the country’s official government. The Afghanistan seat is currently held by the Rabbani government, which was in power before the Taliban militia’s military takeover. Feminist groups oppose recognition of the Taliban by the United States and UN because of the regime’s abhorrent treatment of women and girls and widespread human rights violations. The Feminist Majority Foundation leads to US-based Campaign to Stop Gender Apartheid in Afghanistan.

You have an opportunity to Take Action and urge President Clinton and the United Nations not to recognize the Taliban and to restore women’s human rights in Afghanistan.
