Writers, activists, politicians … Some famous and others not. In a forum unveiled by The Parisian, more than a thousand women demand from the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, the“unconditional welcome” Afghan women and their families as the Taliban seized power in Kabul.

Among the 50 first signatories, are the writer Virginie Despentes, the director and actress Agnès Jaoui, the candidate for the primary environmentalist Sandrine Rousseau, the actress and director Salomé Lelouch, the former minister Cécile Duflot and the transgender philosopher Paul B Preciado.

“Faced with the absolute danger of rape, submission and death, for a country that claims to be enlightened and democratic, there is no other choice but to offer unconditional asylum”, declares the text, imagined by six activists unknown to the general public, who first used Facebook to distribute it.

“Emmanuel Macron does not speak on our behalf when he talks about the French who are worried about a new migratory flow: we are worried, on the contrary, that it does not take place and that our Afghan sisters, and their relatives , die slaughtered, raped, massacred in Afghanistan “, they add.
