Girls and women protested in front of the Ministry of Education in Afghanistan over the Taliban’s plan to close schools.

“Open the schools! Justice, justice!” chanted protesters on Saturday, some carrying school books as they gathered at a city square in Kabul.

This is coming after the education ministry reversed on its policy to reopen school to girls.

On Friday, the United States cancelled planned talks with the Taliban in Qatar that were set to address key economic issues after the group’s decision to close schools.

The decision, which the Taliban has yet to explain, means girls above the sixth grade will not be able to attend school.
