 Malalai Joya has been called the “bravest woman in Afghanistan.” She was the youngest member elected to the Afghan Parliament but was suspended for denouncing the warlords and the US/NATO war and occupation. She continues to speak out despite death threats and assassination attempts. Join us as she talks about the situation in Afghanistan and why it’s essential that US/NATO troops leave immediately.

 Her book, A Woman Among Warlords, with a new afterward about the war under Obama, is now in paperback and will be available for purchase.
