The European Union–a bastion of white supremacy that should be razed to the ground–determined a while ago to deny Afghans asylum despite almost 30 years of war & millions in exile in several countries. There have been a few reports this year of British pilots refusing to fly planes with deported Afghans. Now it’s reported that German pilots at a few airports are refusing to fly planes involved in deporting Afghans. According to the German government, at least 222 deportation flights have been halted. Included in media reports is mention that protesters are on the tarmac to oppose the deportations back to a war zone.
Imagine how powerful these remarkable acts of solidarity would be if accompanied by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of protesters around the world demanding the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of US, European, Indian, & other military operations from Afghanistan.
