  NP View: Trudeau bungee jumps, while Iran burns Over the past three weeks, the Iranian people have clearly demonstrated that they are at their wit’s end after four decades of authoritarian rule. Although regime change is still far from certain, if the grassroots revolution ends up succeeding, it will be of little thanks to the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which has largely sat on the sidelines, meekly following the response of our allies, but unwilling to take a firm stand against Iran’s murderous theocracy. © Provided by National Post Top: A police motorcycle burns during a protest over the death of Mahsa Amini, in Tehran, on Sept. 19.

The women, some of whom had hid their faces behind sunglasses and surgical masks, picked up the debris of their banners to make them balls of paper and throw them on the Taliban who faced them.

"Solidarité"

"We are here to show our support and our solidarity with the Iranian people and the victims of Taliban in Afghanistan," said an organizer of the demonstration, under the guise of anonymity.

in Afghanistan, since the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, several sporadic demonstrations of women were organized in the capital and other cities of the country, despite their ban, whether against the loss of their jobs or to claim the right to work.

The Taliban closed most schools of girls

after 20 years of war and the departure of the American army of Afghanistan, the new leaders of the country have indeed imposed very strict rules on the conduct of women, especially in Public life, ordering women to wear a full veil in public, preferably burqa. The feared ministry of the promotion of virtue and prevention of vice quickly replaced that of female affairs and notably ordered the separation of women and men in the public parks of Kabul .

Islamist fundamentalists have also closed secondary schools for girls in most provinces. They ordered women to cover themselves entirely in public, ideally with a burqa.

Tuesday, a United Nations report denounced these "severe restrictions" to women's rights, including the ban on secondary education, and called on the Taliban to "immediately return to this decision".

The lifting of women's rights restrictions is an essential condition for the recognition of the Taliban government, insisted the international community. So far, no country has recognized the Islamist government.
