A passionate crowd of 1000 mostly Afghan-Australians and mostly young people marched to Parliament House on August 14 calling for peace in Afghanistan.

They chanted “End the proxy war”, “Stop killing children”, “Stop killing women”, “Don’t support terrorists” together with “We want peace, we want peace.”

Activists called for all Afghan refugees to be given permanent residence. Many want Australia’s intake to be increase dramatically, including of those waiting in Indonesia, and those now fleeing the Taliban.
