Malalai Joya on Democracy Now!

Acclaimed Afghan women’s rights activist, former Member of Parliament and author of A Woman Among Warlords, Malalai Joya, recently appeared on Democracy Now to comment on the Afghanistan war.

“As I was saying in the past, as well, and repeating again, that catastrophic situation of the women of Afghanistan was a very good excuse for U.S. and NATO to occupy our country. Unfortunately, they pushed us from the frying pan into the fire as they replaced the barbaric regime of the Taliban with the misogynist warlords, who are — their nature seem like the Taliban. They physically changed, imposed on the destiny of Afghan people. That’s why today millions of Afghans are suffering from insecurity, corruption, joblessness, poverty. And still most of Afghan women are the victim.”
