Malalai Joya, the woman who was elected to Afghan’s new parliament after the post-9/11 invasion, who has been viciously attacked by her fellow parliamentarians (many of whom are warlords and drug-runners), and who is under constant threat of assassination, speaks out against the falsehood of Afghani women having been “liberated” by the invasion and occupation. She writes:
“Under the nose of NATO troops and Canadian troops, the situation of women is getting worse day by day.”Please see her statement “Malalai Joya: Canada should change its policy on Afghanistan” published by RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan. RAWA is the most credible source on the state of human rights for women in Afghanistan.
(Former Canadian Member of Parliament, Alexa McDonough, has also written about Canada’s role in Afghanistan.)
