Malalai Joya Visits US

Afghanistan’s fiercest critic of the warlords, Malalai Joya, returns to the US for a brief visit. She will be addressing students and antiwar activists.

In May 2007, Joya was kicked out of Parliament for comparing the warlords to animals in a zoo in a TV interview. Thousands of Afghans protested across the country. Today, Joya is still awaiting reinstatement to the Parliament.
