Afghan demonstration against religious minority murders

Members of the Afghan community in Austria are to take to the streets in order to protest against the systematic murders of the Hazara-Afghans in Pakistan, who thay say are being persecuted because of being Shia Muslims.

Not only are they being hunted down by extremist religious groups, but also by individuals connected to the local governments – who sometimes take part personally in the persecutions, organisers claim.

The demonstration will take place on the 28th of April to alert international organisations of these crimes against humanity being committed in Pakistan, and also to put some pressure on the Pakistani government.

If Amnesty or the competent office of the United Nations were to be informed properly, the Hazara-Afghans might avoid persecution in the future, they say.

The event takes place on 28. April.2012 from 11:00 to 16:00 going from Stephansplatz-Graben-Kohlmarkt- Michaelerplatz- Herrengasse and also from Shottengasse - Helferstorferstrasse – Wipplingerstrasse.
