With bomb blasts and targeted killings continuing to terrorise Afghan cities and intra-Afghan peace talks stalled in Doha, public outrage is growing after Taliban delegations visited Iran and Russia.
One year after massive protests rocked Tehran and other cities, people want justice for the 304 protestors and bystanders ruthlessly killed by the Iranian regime.
Iranians angered by the regime's continuing mismanagement of the economy and its choices on the geopolitical stage are once again taking to the streets.
Faced with an increasingly disaffected population and a tailspinning economy, Iranian leaders are scrambling to maintain control while at the same time posturing to appear tough.
Iran's Supreme Leader and other top leaders are trying to divert public anger toward its showdown with the West, leaving core issues of discontent unaddressed.
The increasingly violent protests reportedly have hit 100 cities, with three security personnel killed by rioters and 'dozens' of Iranian citizens gunned down in the streets.
Taliban representative Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai said the Afghan National Army should be dissolved. He swiftly backtracked after widespread condemnation from the Afghan public.
'I do not want Afghans, especially the new generation, to become disabled,' said one of the peace marchers.
More than 100 citizens, many disabled as a result of war and terrorism, joined the symphony of voices calling on the Taliban to join the peace process.
The peace caravan is trekking from Pakistan to the Afghan capital to call on the Taliban and other militants to stop fighting and make peace.
