In Germany and France, people pretended: they want this for refugees from Afghanistan

According to Agence France-Presse, in the French capital, Paris, many Afghans also demanded the resettlement of vulnerable people from this Asian country, which was controlled by the Taliban a week ago. “We demand the immediate return of all families and people at risk,” Ezzat, a 31-year-old social worker who is a refugee, told AFP.

Since the fall of the Afghan government on Sunday, August 15, the French army has so far transported about 600 people from Kabul on five flights, most of them Afghans, according to AFP. According to local police, about 1,700 people gathered in front of the residence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the German capital, Berlin, DPA wrote. They called, among other things, for the speedy evacuation of German army soldiers, human rights activists, women’s rights activists, scientists and mathematicians from Afghanistan.

Similar demonstrations took place in Germany on Sunday in Kiel, Frankfurt and others. A YouGov poll showed that nearly two-thirds of Germany’s population agree to accept refugees from Afghanistan, the DPA writes.

On August 15, fundamentalist Taliban militants easily occupied the Afghan capital, Kabul, and overthrew a government that had been militarily backed by the United States and NATO for two decades. Thousands of people are still trying to get out of Kabul. Many Western countries have closed their embassies there and are evacuating their citizens and local collaborators.
